On our last day in Paris we attended church in the morning, then visited with the members in a linger longer lunch. Then we headed up to Sacre Coeur and enjoyed the beautiful view of the city from up there. We wandered the streets in that area, it has a very artsy boutique feel. Then we were off to the train station for an afternoon journey to Amsterdam! Tomorrow we would meet up with our friends from home-- The Miller Family!

We arrived by train for a short weekend visit to Paris! We had to squeezed everything in! The Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Arc du Triumph, and the Museum D'Orsay. And after all that we still had a couple hours left in the day so we fit the Louvre in too. When it's only an hour or so before closing, there's no lines to get in. We walked right up to buy tickets and in to the museum. We rushed around the museum seeing the highlights. For dinner we made a reservation with a local restaurant that was recommended to us by one of our french dive guides in Mexico. The local tradition of Raclette. He told us every time he returns home to France- this is what he wants to eat! It was absolutely delicious! Yummy cheese melted onto bread and potatoes. We also tried a couple recommended Fondues as well! After all we were in Paris- you must eat the cheese!
