Super Tuesday in Paris

We got a late start today. I slept till 10:30, but Sarah set the record finally getting out of bed at 1:30 in the afternoon. It was a lazy day, with rain most of the day.

We did get out and walk past the Eiffel Tower to arrive at the American Library of Paris. This is no free library, membership fee plus a deposit of 60 Euro to encourage books to be returned. The kids were able to checkout four books, which should keep them happy for several days. They appear to have competition going in terms of who can read the most books quickest.

After the library, we sat in a corner bistro and had an early dinner. We had a window table and were able to watch the Parisians passing by.   Marcia ordered French onion soup and it was wonderful, more texture than the typical soup stateside. There were little bits of onion and cheese in the soup. It was topped with melted cheese on the pieces of baguette.

What a treat it is to be able to walk across the street each morning and get a warm baguette.

Here it is 11:33 pm. Looks like we will have to wait till the morning to learn the outcome of Super Tuesday. We talked to one French woman about the election and she mentioned they have their share of outrageous politicians. We all smiled. I forgot Trump is not a politician… http://www.wired.com/2016/02/trump-hacked-election-4-far-easy-steps/?mbid=nl_22916
