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?
Great pictures and comments. It would have been nice to come over. Just no space on the leave board for me to come. Maybe if it happens in the future I will get in on the begining of the trip.
