From the front of the Pantheon you can see right across the top of the Luxembourg Gardens all the way to the Eiffel Tower and you can see that finally the weather has relented and provided some blue sky and sun. Unfortunately Jason and Meg left midday for Antwerp, a city known as the Seattle of Europe in regard to its weather, so I'm really hoping that today was the harbinger of Spring finally coming to Paris and it will continue when they return.
I walked up and around the streets between the Pantheon and Luxembourg Gardens before finally joining tout Paris sitting and sunning everywhere. What's the story anyway, is everyone on sabbatical? There wasn't an empty chair to be had, but not all the grass was off-limits so that's where I ended up. And tonight it was back to eating in, after many wonderful meals while I had people around with whom to share restaurant visits. Just as well though for both budget and belly. Even just buying food and cooking up something like an asparagus omelet, ends up tasting much better here anyway.
