Yesterday afternoon the weather in Paris turned muggy and then stormy, with loud thunder, bright lightning, and finally a steady fine rain overnight. And there are mosquitoes! One (or more) of them kept me up most of the night. I've got bites all over my arms, ears, and forehead.
Earlier, we had a good lunch at the Bistrot de Breteuil with friends from Montréal who are finishing up a week's stay in Paris. A good time was had by all, I believe, and the food was more than "correct" — as we say in France.
Now I'm looking forward to seeing:
That's a list of some of the places we will or might see on the coming week's travels out of Paris and then back around to the east and south. And here's an approximate itinerary on a Google map.
There will be many historic districts, houses, churches, châteaux, monuments, and landscapes to admire... and photograph. By the time you read this today, I'll be on the road, headed north out of Paris.
