Plane, 5 train/metros and 7 million steps later...we arrived at our destination, 7 of us and 6 suitcases. Our lovely aunt and uncle whom we had never met agreed to host our whole family for 3 days. Their car only has two seats, so we gratefully headed to their house on foot and metro.
How we got there:
Scary, super-full metro with suitcases:
Luxury high-speed train down to Mont-de-Marsan: (this is second class)
Who and what we saw; my friend, Elise:
The Eiffel Tower:
Notre Dame de Paris
More tomorrow: where we stayed, what we ate, drank, and visited.
