Bonjour Paris!

Coincidentally I found this fun video of Paris today on Eco Salon.

Paris is lovely! We have a view of the Eiffel tower from our centrally located (& compact) hotel room. We opted for a five day metro pass so we can traverse the city with ease. We picked up sim cards for our iPhone and iPad, which will help in planning and navigating. (iPhone GPS is awesome when traveling). Today we happened upon a massive outdoor antique market and spent time browsing the stalls. Stunning items! We also visited a fun bicycle shop, where J picked up some new Levi's 511 commuter jeans, built for cycling! It's terrific to see cycling so integrated into Paris; bike lanes, multiple bicycle shops, bike share program etc. We also came across an electric vehicle charging station. (Hoping for more charging stations in Canada).

We also lucked out with finding great vegan food. We had a great lunch of vegan pho and kabobs at Loving Hut. We also had vegan cupcakes later from Vegan Folie's. The "John Lemmon" cupcake; lemon and ginger, was my favorite.

I've been reviewing all the outstanding museums and I think we will be in for a jam packed two weeks in Paris! Check out My Flickr stream for more photos of Paris.
