Itinerary   Arrived Paris (Charles De Gaulle) at 3:00 (1/2 hr early).  No Customs hassles, no passport stamp.  Got our luggage, found a taxi, and had a 35-40 minute ride to the Hotel Intercontinental (note: the taxi driver was playing a Shania Twain CD!).  Got checked in, then went for a walk along the Champs Elysees.  We got a drink at Le Deauville, then it was back to the room.  We stopped for some Bertillion ice cream on the way.  Later, we went out for some dinner; sausages & fries for ‘becca and Croque Monsieur & fries for me.  We went to bed ~8:30 pm.
