After resting up while Sailor Babo spent last Friday at the Louvre, Brip and Moxy were ready to have a Parisian adventure on Sarurday. First they waved goodbye to Babo, who was up in the garret window.
Then they wandered east into the Latin Quarter, where they had heard there was a nice market on Rue Mouffetard. The market was near closing time and possibly smaller since it was off-season, but the window-shopping was fun.
It’s time for treats!
Next they ambled over to the nearest Roman ruins.
Moxy & Brip visit the Arenes de Lutece
Gosh, these steps are tall!
After having lunch at Shakespeare & Co., they visited Sainte-Chapelle, a lovely, stained glass-filled church.
Then it was time to dash home, eat a Monoprix meal with Babo, and get ready for the ballet. To get to the Opera Bastille, they hopped on the bus.
We’re getting the hang of this bus thing!
They were thrilled to have a front-row seat at this performance, with easy access to the orchestra pit.
We could get used to this!
The ballet performance was wonderful!
On the way home, Moxy spotted an orchestra player on the bus!
It was an exciting day and evening. Brip and Moxy went to bed happy and exhausted.
