Birthdays in Paris

Just a quick note to tell you 
that I am in Paris this week for two birthdays. 
Mine (which is today) 
and my sister's which was this day last week. 
My sweetie surprised me with a ticket 
to surprise my sister for her 50th.
And surprise her I did! 
We pulled it off and she had absolutely no idea.
We took her to Le Train Bleu
in the Gare de Lyon train station. 
What a magnificent place! 
I'm posting a few photos just to give you an idea.

I had to stifle my reticence at snapping photos 
in the face of such opulence...

but they must be used to it.

And all the waiters were very kind. 

Of course I've taken a boat-load of photos while I've been here...

...and promise to be back soon with photos of our dinner.

In the meantime, 
Oh La La
A bientot!
