Promenons-nous dans les bois...

...pendant que le loup n’y est pas! Fortunately, there were no wolves to be found in the woods today when we visited the Château de Longchamps; all we found were delicious plants! We started with une petite balade en forêt, strolling through the woods while our guide, Michel, pointed out which plants were edible and showed us how to harvest them. Armed with des ciseaux et des paniers (scissors and baskets), we made our way through nature’s shopping center, stopping along the way to admire the old ice house, the orangerie, and the beauty of the forest itself. We even got to fill our water pitchers from a natural spring!

Paris, nous t'aimons...

En attendant le train

...but we’ve left you for Belgium!

Our last few days in Paris have been busy, to the point where we haven’t even managed a blog post! We’ve seen museums, cathedrals, the Tour Eiffel (from land, water, and the air!), the UNESCO world headquarters, and a truly astonishing number of pigeons. We’ve walked uphill, downhill, over the river, through the park, and across the Champs-Elysées, and all without getting turned around more than a few times. We’ve eaten baguettes by the dozen and taken the Metro enough times to feel like we know what we’re doing (mostly).
