We decided yesterday to see the famous Luxembourg Gardens, so we took the bus down Blvd St Michel and got off at the stop by the entrance.
(We had also hoped to see the Montparnasse Cemetery before it closed at 6pm, but the Blvd Raspail and the various sidestreets in the 6e that we had to traverse from the Jardiin to get to the Julolio Cortazar grave proved too gnarly for us to do it in a hurry without maps.)
No wornies we will do it Tuesday morning before leaving at 3-ish for CDG.
So without further dilly dally here are pics of that adventure and also a pic of me strolling on Blvd. Montparnasse past the world-famous La Coupole!
