I highly recommend Air France and the Hôtel Au Manoir St Germain des Près in the 6th arrondissement of Paris.   I also recommend French Coca-Cola, it’s made with real sugar, not high fructose corn syrup.   What else…?  Oh, nutella crepes… I must learn to make nutella crepes.  Here are a few pics.

This photograph is interesting in that the top of the Eiffel is so high, you can plainly see the curvature of the earth at the horizon (no, it’s not just the camera lens)

I took about 700 pictures, so these are just a very few. We were blessed with wonderful weather, a little cool… but no rain during the short, short time we had. The hotel room was state of the art and not small, I never met a rude person (even the beggars were polite), the security at Charle-De-Galle airport was slow (but polite and efficient), and we had a marvellous time. Quite frankly, the flights on Air France were the best I have ever flown. We will be returning soon.
