At last we are in Paris! Our dear friend Susan Wilkin (in center) was also on our flight, but the customs and baggage situation separated us and we ended up taking separate taxis to the hotel. Waiting for us there was our "online" friend, Pat Rogerson (left) who is part of our art group. This was our first time to meet face to face! It felt as though she had been right next door all these years. (6yrs) ") We landed about 9:30AM and could not check into our rooms until after 1:00PM. So we hauled all our luggage into the office and hallway and took off on a tour of the neighborhood, led by our new friend, Pat. We were to be a part of this little neighborhood known as the Latin Quarter in the fifth arrondissement for the next nine days.
