Well, I definitely didn't sit and relax - but that may come tomorrow!
I had so thoroughly enjoyed the chocolate tour last week - and did not want "Tony" to spoil the Latin Quarter for me - so I decided to meet up with the same tour company this morning and explore the Mouffetard section of the Latin Quarter. Unlike the chocolate tour - I didn't have to pre-register. I just showed up at the assigned metro stop and participated. The fee was 12 euro for a two hour tour. It is billed as the Hemingway Tour - and the guide does discuss the author quite a bit - but really it was a tour of this particular section of the Latin Quarter. I would not hesitate to recommend this group to anyone who is looking for a way to discover a new region of Paris in just a couple of hours. The two guides that I had were quite knowledgeable - and passionate - about their chosen topic and so it was quite delightful to walk around and listen to their expertise.

trust me - spectacular!
I am now glad that I called it an early day - it is down pouring outside! I think I will relax - perhaps organize souvenirs etc to pack tomorrow - and think about how I wish to spend my last day in this beautiful city of lights.
