We got up early this morning - I had to see the whole of Paris in a day!!! Well half a day really, as 2 hours of it was to be dedicated to a pub and watching the final of the Rugby World Cup. The first thing we did was get the black eyeliner out and put black NZ on each others cheeks. We wanted people to know we were supporting our boys in black! We also dressed from head to toe in black! Our first stop of the day was the Gare du Nord, the international train station, where we stored our luggage for the day. That meant we were free to just metro to the station to catch our train to Amsterdam at 6pm. Once the luggage was stored, it was off to Notre Dame which opened at 8am. I wanted to see Notre Dame having studied it at school a few years ago!! We arrived just as the sun was rising. A pretty scene of the Seine!
Anne and I made our way to the Louvre... I had one hour to see the lot!!!
As we walked a lot of people came up and congratulated us, talked about the game, asked us for the score, teased us that we only won by one point etc... Having the NZ on our cheeks certainly made Paris interact with us, and made it a fun day!
