After 2.5 weeks of exhausting work, 16-19 hours per day, it’s finally over. The second group leaves tomorrow morning. Over the last couple days I’ve been able to give the staff a little time off each day – a few hours. I’ve mostly visited neighborhoods rather than attractions – I spent some time in Le Marais, the Latin Quarter and Canal St. Marten.

I keep meaning to spend some time reading in a cafe, getting a spa appointment or just taking a nap – but there’s so much of this city I haven’t seen, it’s hard to make myself just sit around and relax.

Tonight is our last function – dinner on a yacht on the Seine – then I have some time off before I leave for my flight. Rest or explore…?
