Thursday 27 September - Paris, Buttes Chaumont

We did several things around Paris today.  First stop was a coffee and a croissant.
The SNCF maintenance yards at Ville St. Georges was next.  On the way we saw a couple of trams testing the new tram line that will be opening towards the end of the year.
A postal TGV was being put in the shop for maintenance.
Next was a visit to the model shop near Quai de la Gare followed by Buttes Chaumont park.  This was pretty quiet but the fall colours were beginning to show.

Bastille and Place des Vosges were next followed by the Hotel de Ville - impossible to photograph because of the left overs from a rock concert or show.  A quick look at the tourist infested Notre Dame and we returned to the apartment and went out again to have a last look at Monceau.
Place des Vosges
 Dinner this evening was at Le Pet't Canon, as good as ever with the personable waitress.  The duck was excellent.
