The next morning we had breakfast at Mum and Dads flat then whilst the others went to explore the catacombs of Paris, I took Pandora to see Monet’s Waterlillies at the Orangerie, which she loved. We then went to Angelina and shared a white hot chocolate and some macarons, the chocolate and passion fruit one was delicious!

We walked around and saw all the artists, then went to the Sacré Coeur. We walked to the Cemitière de Montmartre on the way back and saw the grave of Degas (after searching for it for a long time!) Then I showed them my school and we made our way back towards place d’italie to the giant Carrefour where we bought ingredients for raclette. They had a modern raclette at the flat which makes it much easier to melt the cheese, and we all loved it but were very full of cheese afterwards! Then we watched looper which I had seen before but the others enjoyed.

The next morning we went over to the Musée d’Orsay. I feel I now know this museum very well having spent about 5 hours in it this week! Dad loved Whistlers mother featured in Mr Bean and Pandora loved the Degas. For lunch we headed over to Saint Germain de Près and eventually found a little place which made quiches and sandwiches which was very tasty. We walked across the River on Le Pont des Arts where there was a film being filmed actually. And also past a flower market where there were lots of tiny birds in cages for sale and then onto Notre Dame. We whizzed round as Heidi and Nick had to get back to catch their eurostar so we said our goodbyes. Then  we went to meet Marie Laure, mum gave her some tea and dad tried a bit of french! Soon after I took Pandora to the Gare du Nord for her train back to London then returned for dinner and Tintin with mum and dad.
