Paris



My failed attempt to conquer The Louvre

We were in Paris for 3 days two nights ...actually only one and a half day was available for sightseeing, and we made full use of it.

We visited churches, made pilgrimage to the Miraculous Medal Chapel and paid respect to the in-corruptable body of Sr. Catherine Laboure whom Mother Mary has appeared to her in 1830.

We joined the Paris Free city walk, a 3.5 hours of seeing Paris by walking led by a guide. (too little time to write and posting photos, will do it later)

Today, we left Paris for Grenoble, a city at the south-eastern part of France, at the foot of French Alps. It is also known as "the capital of Alps".

It is a beautiful and quiet town with great view of the mountains. We will be here for about 5 days as guest of Julie, Elizabeth's former French course-mate.

More to come later ... hopefully!!
