Église Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre (Church of Saint Julian the Poor)

We had seen many restaurants serving fondue in the Latin Quarter and that sounded good to Linda, so we returned to the Flagrant Delice, which looked like one of the better choices. The little restaurant was nearly full and rather hot - the flames from the fondue were adding to the heat. We split a cheese fondue with bread and potato, which turned out to be more filling than we expected and we ate no more that night.
It was also my first opportunity to have cidre (hard apple cider) during the trip and we split a good bottle of Cidre Doux, a sweet cider from Normandy.
We finally walked along the bank of the La Seine where

proposal at the Eiffel Tower)

airport. It turned out that due to construction, the late night trains
do not go all the way and you transfer to a shuttle bus for the last of
