1. We ate here:
Le Meurice and Antoine and had champagne at the Krug bar at the hotel [Shangri-La](http://www.shangri-la.com/paris/shangrila/press-room/press-releases/le-bar-ciel-ouvert-by-krug/ ) which is where we stayed. But my favorite meal was at a little Brasserie over near the Mussee D'Orsay called Cocorico. We ate one big meal a day and the rest of the day walked it off.
2. What stood out the most was the Cathedral Sacre Couer in Monmarte. It was a beautiful walk to get there and the cathedral itself is stunning. When we entered they were just starting a mass. We sat and participated. (neither of us are catholic or even religious). A nun began to sing. It was like hearing the voice of an angel. It impacted me. I began to pray. No joke. I had a spiritual moment. Only minutes before, I was walking up the hills of Monmartre and my wife pointed out a woman that looked just like my recently deceased grandmother. It was all very romantic, other-worldly and unique.
We also visited the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, Musee D'Orsay, and walked all over the city. We sat on the steps of the modern art museum and watched all the local skateboarders do tricks on the steps of that beautiful building. NEVER could you get away with this in the US.
3. English is a second language there. Never did I experience an issue communicating. The French people I interacted with were very kind, but to be fair most were service people; waiters, drivers, etc. We spent most of our time together.
I'll try and post photos when I can.
