It felt so hot as we walked. I said " too bad there isnt an Amorino gelato here!" And half a block later, we saw one!! Yay!! This one was small so it didnt have ALL the flavors, but we all got stuff we liked and enjoyed it (side note-i googled and found there is on in the states--here in NYC!! So we went last weekend! It was as good). We reached Galerie Lafayette. We found the color Longchamps bag my mom wanted but couldn't find what I wanted. We decided to use the bathroom, which we had to pay 50 cents for (and it wasnt that great!). We looked around a bit and found the men's section. My dad had wanted a tie that was "parisian".. We looked around and then we finally asked an employee if he could point us to some good french ties as we wanted to buy something we could not get in the states. He pointed us to a few things including american brands! Uh, no. We continued looking and found a parisian brand that we hadnt heard of in the states and picked a nice tie. By then C had found the men's berets and she had been telling me for a couple years that she really wanted a beret from france. But these were the men's ones. So she was crying while I was paying for the tie. We decided we were tired and it was time to go home...
We took the metro back home. We picked up somethings from the grocery store and then decided to pick up dinner. I had noticed a rotisserie chicken place nearby so we stopped there and got a roast chicken, and 3 side dishes. Then we stopped at a store and picked up a cheese that seemed to be less stinky than the last one!
We had our dinner, along with the baguette from earlier, and our wine... It was nice to have a relaxing dinner at home. Even though I didnt cook during the trip like I thought I would, it was still cheaper and more relaxing to have some meals at home...
We got ready for bed and DD and Dsis went to sleep. Dh and I read a bit about versailles--and listened to a podcast that we had downloaded by Rick Steves. We finally went to sleep. We had an early morning ahead of us.
Up next: Day 5,Versailles
