I accidentally reformatted the memory card on my camera about 5 days in and lost 300 pictures. That makes it a lot harder to remember what we did when. We tried to eat authentic French and English food and see as much as possible in the short time we had. We walked 8-10 miles just about every day.
In Paris, we went to the Louvre, the Musee D'Orsay, the Eiffel Tower, the Champs-Élysées, the Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame, Sacre-Coeur, Montparnasse Tower, the Catacombs of Paris, and Pere Lachaise Cemetary. There are probably other places in Paris that I've forgotten.
This is the one picture I took on my phone -- it was a beautiful day. We bought a baguette, cheese, and salami from small markets and ate the sandwich here, in view of the Eiffel Tower.
We then went back to London, and went to a bunch of places there as well. It seemed we were always going to the museums. We tried to do a self guided Jack the Ripper tour, which would have been super cool if I had known more about the murders -- should have done my homework. There was a free or relatively cheap tour but we didn't get to the starting point in time for that.
We went to see a ballet at the Royal Opera House. It was a beautiful, old building, and surprisingly, I enjoyed the ballet. We saw "The Four Temperaments/Untouchable/Song of the Earth". The middle one, was the best.
Walked down Drury Lane -- didn't see the muffin man though...
