Paris in Spring-time

Is quite chilly just now, especially as I am in the former convent garden of the rue du Bac, making use of their free wifi. yesterday I braved Versailles and saw the Hall of Mirrors and walked down the staircase Marie Antoinette used to effect her escape. The gardens were, beautiful, but COLD COLD COLD. I abandoned them after 90 minutes in what turned into driving rain. After recovering back at the hotel, it was off to a concert of chant and medieval music at Notre Dame. A concert, not a Mass, but still the singing was great, he instrumentalists wonders.ul and the nave pretty wel full. I was well back in a queue outside 30 mins before it started. les grands magasins.
