Paris: What a Way to Wind Down a Wine Tour

Tomorrow we leave for home after a 3 night stay in our favorite city, Paris, revisiting some of our favorite haunts where we lived  for 6 weeks back in our university days. In our humble opinion, it is the most beautiful city on earth. Our hotel was in the 6th arrondissement where we lived for 6 weeks as students in the UCONN Program Aboard; this is a greta location to stay as we could be 5 minutes in the Jardin du Luxembourg  and 10 minutes from the Metro.

We spent some time in the Luxembourg Gardens, took a bateau mouche ride on the Seine, saw the new Frank Gehry museum in Bois de Boulogne and most importantly, visited with our Parisian friends and relatives. And on a spur of the moment (because I read a poster plastered on a wall) we decided to attend a performance of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons held in the Sainte Chapelle near Notre Dame. It was a moving performance and the group leader was entertaining as as well informative and as an encore explained some of the details of the poem used by Vivaldi to write that superb piece of music, performed by 4 violons, a cello and harpsichord.  A splendid way to end our stay in this gorgeous city.

Roz and I have been a long time away from home and we look forward to seeing our grandkids and our little Minny. We are bringing back with us many memories of  our successful tours to Corsica and Southern France which we spent with many new participants as well as our cherished tour alumni.
