An Apartment in Paris

Just a quick post to share some photos taken yesterday.

A 5 minute walk from our apartment we're renting while we're here. Our place is literally around the corner from Champ de Mars park and has turned out to be very convenient. It's approximately a 10 minute walk from the metro and has a cheese shop, a deli, a produce market, a boulangerie / patisserie and a tons of cafes just a few steps away. It is in an old building with this view:

& the best part - a washer / dryer, a petite kitchen, and space for my little guy to stretch out in. Besides that, the price was very, very reasonable... approx. $125 a night. At Christmas & New Years. With a view of the Eiffel Tower. We were really lucky to find it. The interior is only ok with the best part being the windows and the view. The rest is very simple, but we're only here to sleep, relax between stops, etc., so it's no biggie. I'm sure if we spent more we would have gotten that, but this is great and perfect for our family. As I have more time I'll make sure to post more pics of the apartment and talk more about it in another post.

Walking around yesterday we found Mariage Freres, and if you're a tea fan, this is major. TOOTD, these shots are for you, girl!

Today we're sticking around "our neighborhood," seeing the Eiffel Tower, walking Rue Cler (Rue Rick Steves) and just enjoying scenery. We're hopping an overnight train to Rome tonight!

Hope everyone is enjoying Christmas Week! Joyeaux Noel!
