    You had a very busy and active day today. Great pictures to give us a feel for the day.

    Wonderful! What a day and night to arrive in Paris!

    We were there in 1998 when France went all the way. I’ll never forget the excitement.

    Enjoy this week as I know you will. Allez les Bleus!!

    We are staying in Le Haut Marais and it was pandemonium here as well! I can only imagine what it will be like on Sunday if France wins! We will probably stay close to our apartment, perhaps join the festivities at the cafe on the corner. Fingers crossed for France!

      Yes, indeed! Allez les Bleus! Or something like that!

    We’ve become fans of the Tour de France since you introduced us to it a couple years back. The TV aerial photography of the race gives a great view of other parts of France and provides a nice supplement to your blog. Coupled with the World Cup, the folks in France must be having a wild sports summer. Does the World Cup overshadow the Tour de France? I’d thought of your apartment being in neighborhood of residential, small shops and businesses. The photo from your window seems to show that.

      I’d say the World Cup tops Le Tour de France. Football is king here as in the US. Le Tour hasn’t been the same since the Lance Armstrong debacle. If France wins Sunday night, I think the whole place will be celebrating all night.

    Thanks to the French goalkeeper for that amazing save.
