Paris Marathon


Paris Marathon, originally uploaded by Campobello Island.

Well I've been busy doing the tourist thing for the past couple of days. Yesterday was Paris Marathon Day and I just happened to be in the right place when the largest pack went past. I didn't wait around to see the finishe, don't like large crowds that much.

I have had exceptional weather ever since I arrived in Paris. When I was walking by the Seine yesterday the name on this boat caught my attention, New Brunswick, there was a young man washing his car next to it so I asked if the owners were from New Brunswick and he said they are friends of his and yes they are Canadians and from New Brunswick.

I think Segways are the neatest things and I would love to try it sometime but not on the streets of Paris, death by Segway doesn't interest me.



Today was my visit to the Louvre which I enjoyed but what a mob of people, it really makes it hard to enjoy the things that you want to see with so many people talking and trying to get in to see the things that interest them. I stayed about four hours and that was all I could take for one day.
