je suis en france.

this time, my flight to paris was not fraught with alcohol-induced fainting. but after experiencing air canada's breakfasts and dinners, i'm convinced i prefer flying british airways. :P

my first day was spent navigating the RER and metro as i had to check my bag at gare de lyon while i played tourist. i went to montmartre to see le sacre coeur and the weather was beeeeootiful. unfortunately the hordes of people didn't inspire me to take many photos.

i managed to navigate my way to la musée picasso after taking the funicular from the top of sacre coeur (not really worth it, but i wanted to compare it to the hk funicular which was pretty awesome). i still feel weird about taking photos in museums, even though it seems to be a fairly common thing to do, but that could be because my extremely noisy nikon attracts more attention than i would like.

getting from paris' gare de lyon to fontainbleau-avon was pretty easy after i figured out where the baggage check was (i got all confused and thought it was on a different floor). nicki and i had yummy crêpes for dinner and then email for dessert. ;)

do you mean funicular in the sense that it scales the side of a mountain or large hill?
