Our last day in Paris was spent shopping on Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré . The Hermès boutique was so crowded with tourists that it was impossible to browse around. I went in, got what I wanted and left. After shopping, I was contemplating whether I should check out the exhibition of Helmut Newton's works or wander around Paris, just to take in the view. I chose the latter. We wandered from Grand Palais to Trocadéro on foot. It was great watching a crew filming near Bateaux Mouches and eating ice-cream next to the Eiffel Tower.
If you notice that I have not been carrying a purse or bag in all my previous posts, it was because I almost got mugged on our first day in Paris, near the l'Opéra. A lady (an illegal immigrant, I believe) had one hand in my purse and the other hand around my shoulder. Luckily, Alvin reacted quickly, yanked her hand out of my purse and pushed her away. I'm just glad that nobody got hurt. Passers-by were very kind to stop and asked if I was alright. So, yeah, no purse or bag for me throughout the trip. :(
