Wednesday 20 December - Party

It has been a mild but damp, but not rainy, day today.  There has been water in the air but hot heavy enough to make it worthwhile opening an umbrella. We walked down to Marks and Spencer close to the Gare Saint Lazare to get party snacks and dropped in to the station on the way back.

We walked with Colleen McCarthy to the party organized by Phrederic and Gail at an Irish pub on the Boulevarde de Clichy close to the Place de Clichy.  It was a great deal of fun and mainly ex-pats living in Paris with a small number of visitors like us.  There were people from all over - Canada, USA, England, Ireland, Brazil, Italy, Germany, even France and there were a variety of languages spoken. I settled for Guinness while Mary was drinking white wine from Les Landes.

Gail won the prize for the most sexy Santa costume. Good job there was a fire extinguisher close because she was hot.
We took a short detour afterwards to take a look at the lights on the Moulin Rouge.
