Yay, my family finally arrived today after a long 10 hours in the air! This is their first time in Paris…fortunately, the weather is gorgeous here so far, though it’s starting to get a little chilly. My brother is so excited to be here, so I took him around town while everyone else rested and recovered from jetlag. I sort of know my way around town well enough now to navigate the metro and take him to the major tourist spots. Just in one day, we made it to the Place de la Concorde, the Avenue des Champs-Elysees, l’Arc de Triomphe, the pyramids at the entrance of the Musee du Louvre, Notre Dame, the Quartier Latin, and finally Saint Germain des Pres without getting lost. He was completely passed out by 9pm though, but was fully recovered by 730 the next morning.
The big day is already going to be here tomorrow, but I still haven’t had a full night’s sleep in days. Hopefully, we won’t have ugly pictures from lack of sleep!
