Well, actually it’s May 1st, a holiday, with flower stands that popped up early this morning. Arrived yesterday and checked into our hotel in the middle of Montparnass district. Great corner room with windows onto a busy square. Fun just to watch the activity. Have found a couple of side walk cafes with no smoking inside. Otherwise lots of smokers! Great croissants for breakfast & yummy crepes for a late lunch. Rain this afternoon. Taking naps & adjusting to the time change. Train tomorrow to St. Jean Pied De Port.
