The answer is 3. The question: How many people does it take to select Marsha’s correct size in France? She bought this cute jacket. Joan and I have envy.

What a fabulous time we have had with Barb and Marsha. I sadly escorted them to the train station to head home today. We did so much and had so many memorable experiences, I thought it best just to make this blog post less wordy and to try to let the photos tell the story. Though I thought I might summarize the highlights in numbers:
1 excellent Bloody Mary x 4 at the Opera House restaurant (we sat in the bar area).
1 scrumptious hot chocolate x 4 at the Cafe de la Paix restaurant. If you go, slip into the hotel and sit in comfy chairs. Still great people watching but in a much nicer setting than the perimeter restaurant.
1 stroll along the Champs-Élysées with some great shopping.
1 trip to Bercy Village.
1 trip to the flea market at Marche St Ouen with 4 purchases.
2 great meals at the Marly restaurant with a view of the pyramids at the Louvre.
2 people bunked in Joan’s bedroom. Joan slept on the floor. Marsha had the bed but hardly slept at all. Barb braved the couch.
2 gardens (Luxembourg and Tuilleries).
3 children: Fox, Charlee and Parker. They are Marsha’s grandkids and they now own a part of Paris. We loved shopping for them.
3 hours spent at the Louvre. We needed 300 hours.
4 purses purchased and 4 boots/shoes purchased.
5 days of shopping before Marsha and Barb found themselves boots. Can you believe they bought them at the Montparnasse train station?
