Day 23. Paris, France πŸ‡«πŸ‡·

A walk in the park

sunny 31 °C

We had until noon to use up our Paris pass. So we trekked 5 km to the MusΓ©e d'Orsay. It was a beautiful walk along the Seine and mostly in the shade of trees. By the time we got there it was around 10 AM. No problem, we thought. Well they refused our passes and wouldn't even let us use the loo, even after speaking to supervisor after supervisor and explaining how we understood our Pass privileges. At the time we purchased the passes we had asked the clerk repeatedly how the pass worked and if it was good for 48 hours. Gin asked her in French and I asked her in English several times and the answer was always the same. 48 hours. Well apparently we were misinformed as the pass was only good for 2 calendar days even though we didn't get it until noon. Grrrr. Gin & I were willing to pay the admission but the guys were so disgusted with the way the staff treated us that they refused. So back we walked the 5 k and went to see the cannons and pool and fountain across the river from the Eiffel Tower. By now it had heated up to 31 and we were a little heated ourselves. Lesson number ???? Speak to two different staff at these places and see if you get the same answer. We are still smiling πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ. We had a lovely relaxing afternoon. Went for another walk but it was just too hot and there was no breeze today. It was time for a lazy afternoon and that's just what we did. Dennis is still sick and now has a bad cold, still has a sore throat and feeling pretty rotten. It's all about timing πŸ˜“πŸ˜₯πŸ˜–. I did get some great photos last night and I am still high from the climb up the Arc de Triomphe yesterday. Still 31 at 8 pm when we had dinner. No AC in this old hotel but a fan using the only electrical plug! We are having such an adventure! 😎
