Paris and London Trip Report: Day 4

Our First Full Day in Paris

August in Paris can be a bit strange in that the streets, busses and trains can be relatively empty because many of the Parisians are on vacation themselves.    All the museums and attractions are open, but some restaurants and shops are closed.   Crowds are moderate at attractions also, but not overwhelming.    The weather is warm, 80's during the day but cooler at night.   Check out my blog post to see what we did on our first full day visit in Paris.
