From Sent Subject Betty King Friday,1st June My holiday in Paris
Hi, Grandma! Here I am in Paris. Jenny and I arrived by plane the day before yesterday. Aunt Joan and Uncle Pete met us at the airport. We were tired so we relaxed at home and began our tour of the city yesterday. Yesterday we went to the Louvre Museum. It has many word-famous works of art, such as the Mona Lisa. In the evening we had dinner in a French restaurant. The food was delicious!
This morning we took a walk. There are shops and restaurants everywhere, and 1 love the street markets. They sell such good fruit and vegetables. We also did some shopping. I bought a present for you. 1 hope you’ll like it! At about three o clock, we took the Pan's Underground to the Eiffel Tower. It is really high. There were lots of tourists, so first of all, we had to wait in line for an hour, and then we went to the top. We waited till all the lights were on. It was wonderful! Tomorrow we re going to visit a famous palace and take a boat tour on the River Seine. I’ll write again. Love, Betty
