We landed in Paris on the 27th February and went straight to Hotel Tourisme. It’s a quiet little hotel, almost invisible from the road, in the 15th Arrondisement just a few steps from the metro station Motte Picquet-Grenelle. We were delighted to see that we were just next to La Rue de Pondichery. Eating out was a pleasure as there were a number of little restaurants, and a range of different kinds of cuisine. We walked down to Champs de Mars which was within walking distance. In the evening we bought a bunch of daffodils, and I’m so glad we did because they were so perfect. We practically saw them opening in front of our eyes in the warmth of our hotel room.
