October 11th - The Puss-Puss land in Paris!

The Puss-Puss take the RER and exit at the Invalides station. Puss-Puss gets its first sight of Paris under the sunrise. The Invalides on the left, the Alexandre III bridge on the right, Eiffel Tower straight ahead. Puss-Puss is blown away.

The Puss-Puss get slightly confused in the streets of the 7th arrondissement, then finally rejoice at the sight of Puss-Puss little brother in his apartment. He seems so happy to see Puss-Puss. The Puss-Puss, along with Puss-Puss brother then go to enjoy their first parisian breakfast in a cafe. Since Puss-Puss brother lives in a touristic neighborhood, the waiter addresses Puss-Puss in english and gives a cafe allonge when Puss-Puss asks for a coffee (and not an expresso, which is what you would usually get when asking for a coffee in France).
Another authentic french experience awaits the Puss-Puss upon their return to brother's apartment: they find out that, thanks to the strikes, their train for Montpellier is canceled. The Puss-Puss rapidly book some new tickets and organize some last minute meeting with friends. The Puss-Puss are thriving on last minute inconveniences. That's what Puss-Puss does! The Puss-Puss then go for a first round of visit, starting with l'Opera Garnier:

The Puss-Puss then get their first meal in Paris. It was not a good one. Puss-Puss get some very bad magret de canard. After this disappointment, the Puss-Puss go for a little bit of shopping and Puss-Puss chooses the birthday present from the little brother at Desigual in the Galeries Lafayette:

The Puss-Puss then go to Place Vendome and check out the jewelry:

The Puss-Puss are then abandoned by little brother (who has to pack) and they walk erratically through the Jardin des Tuileries until the Louvre. Jet lag is slowly and surely striking them.

We also have the chance to see not une... wait for it... but deux legend... wait for it... legendary deux-chevaux touring tourists through Paris:

The Puss-Puss then cross the Seine thanks to the lovely Pont des Arts...

...and take a little break in the Cafe des Beaux-Arts; they get a cafe gourmand and a huge charcuterie/cheese plate, that they are not even able to finish, shame on them!

They walk back to little brother apartment, taking a "short" photo-shoot break in front of the Invalides:

For the evening, Puss-Puss elder brother joins them, and they go to a restaurant randomly chosen by the little brother... This time his random choice is luckier than at lunch and everyone enjoys a very good dinner.

The Puss-Puss then go to bed and Puss-Puss enjoys reading the books offered by the elder brother. Meanwhile, little brother finishes packing for the great trip to India. And that's it folks!

From Puss-Puss, good night.
