I have found that not planning every detail, leads to wonderful surprises. Today, Laura and I decided to have a picnic and explore (a.k.a. play on the play-ground) Parc Floral. One of the great things about Paris, is that you can turn a corner and run into something centuries old. Before making it to Parc Floral, we literally ran into Chateau de Vincennes. Here, we sat on some stone steps, ate our cheese and baguette sandwhiches, and attempted to appear french. Maybe my intense laughter or our nerdy photo-session gave it away that we weren't. But we had as much fun as the little kids that we competed for the swings with.
