We were lucky that we were able to get into our room as soon as we arrived. After checking in, we went out for a quick breakfast at a local patisserie, then returned to our room for a nap.
When we finally regained consciousness, in the early afternoon, we walked to the Musee d'Orsay.
We wandered around the Orsay for a while; unfortunately, no photography was allowed inside. Then we strolled back to our hotel, stopping at a sidewalk cafe for wine and cheese.
After another nap, we set out to explore 'our' neighborhood and find a place for dinner. We ended up at a charming Bistrot called Peres et Filles, where our dessert was the most amazing molten chocolate cake I've ever had (and yes, I'm a connoisseur!)
Then after a short stroll, jet-lag struck again and we came back to our room to read and relax.
Our first day in Paris was fantastique!
