LES INVALIDES - NAPOLEON'S TOMB
Walked out and purchased a large inexpensive suitcase to take things home on the airplane. It was only 199 Franc which is about $25.00. Should make it easier getting things home. Rain started about 5 pm but had stopped by the time we walked over to last nights restaurant to try the onion soup. Also had Beaujolais Nouveau, the new wine for 2000 season. It’s very popular in Europe to drink the new wine, which comes out on November 16th! We missed it by one day! Walked home the long way so that we could look at the Eiffel Tower lights at night. We’re only a few blocks from the Tower. Nice evening, drinking lots of bottled water and watching the political story in America on Bush and Gore!
