It was getting dark as we approached Paris. I had planned to give the city a wide berth but when I realized the GPS was going to take us right past, began to formulate a plan for a surprise detour.

The surprise element was foiled when a couple of the gang came up with the same idea. So a new waypoint was selected and we headed into the city

Parking initially looked challenging but after a quick trip around the block, we pulled up on the sidewalk at the end of a long line of mopeds

We arrived just in time for the nightly display of flashing lights

We took it in turns to guard the bikes and take in the tourist stuff like souvenir shopping and a few "I was here!" photos.
