La louvre continued

Sent from my iPhoneWe wandered around the louvre for a few hours. Saw the Mona lisa,
Venus de Milo, lots of art and statues but our favourite was the
egyptian section!

In the last few days we have seen lots of cool sites and went up 2
towers. Tonight we are doing a night tour so we can see the everything
all lit up.

And we saw the Mona Lisa!

Ariki lighting the flame in the ceremony for the unknown soldier

We happened to be at the arc de triomphe when they did the ceremony
for the unknown soldier. Ariki was asked to participate and "lit" the
flame alongside a war veteran, then signed the official book to show
he had been there (that photo to come later). it was a pretty special
experience and proof that it is worth trying something different
because you never know what might happen!

Summer time

After coming home from the UK we have been seeing the local sights with a French friends from Toulouse (where we used to live).

We went down to Cannes for another fireworks display and went to Juans-les-Pins to take the glass bottom boat ride. We also learned how to play Mastermind and played a french version of Monopoly.

Its been really hot and we are swimming all the time, either in our pool or at the beach.
