We only had one day to explore the City of Light, Paris. After an event filled journey in Egypt, we were exhilarated and exhausted, but also excited to see the famous landmarks of Paris. We had high expectations.
We boarded the metro on a rainy April day in Paris. None of us spoke very much French, so it was sure to be a bit of a challenge.
After purchasing our tickets, we were off on our journey. My son was the navigator, and he concentrated on figuring out the subway (metro) system so we would not get lost. It was unfamiliar to all of us, but being a world traveler, it didn’t take long before our son was teaching us all how to read the signs inside the metro cars. He also had a map he picked up at the metro station.
