Okay, back to our day. We got off the Metro at the Bastille, and walk around the plaza taking pictures. The kids loved running around, as they always do. We then started walking to the Maison de Victor Hugo. Somehow, we got turned around. We were not too far away from our goal, but we did end up by Museum Carnavalet instead. At this point, it was lunch time and we had to search frantically for somewhere to eat as the natives were beyond restless. We couldn't find anything but expensive places. As we were walking we realized there were a ton of clothing shops. It finally hit us that we were walking through the Marais District. It was fancy and beautiful. We are definitely going to come back to this area and explore more. It was fun happening on this iconic part of the city.
|Cars did not travel through very often but I didn't get many pictures of the area...another reason to go back!|
|This is where we ate our lunch.|

|Bobby was very excited about seeing this...The Declaration of Rights of Man.|
