Broiling in Paris

We have arrived in Paris, which is also very hot. Went to St. Emilion this morning, which was very pretty. Tasted lots of good wine, bought a few bottles. Went down into a cave, carved out of the limestone the town is built over. Other than the severe difficulties with finding our directions, it was a great morning. The TGV to Paris was pleasant enough. Oddly there were no stops between Bordeaux and Paris, making it a pretty quick trip.

Picked up my glasses from the Opticien near the Gare d'Lyon, they came out quite well I think. Wearing them now. Wandered around a bit, went to the Bastille in honor of yesterday (not that there is much to see there) then ate around there. Stopped by the Centre Pompidou to take a look at the inside out building, and the fountain.

It is deeply unpleasant in here, as there is no A/C for the computers or the humans in this hall.
