Eurostar to Paris

We took the 7:30am train from St Pancras station in London to Paris. Its a fast and comfortable journey to close to the centre of Paris. After a tiny hassel getting a taxi we arric=ved at Hotel Sydney Opera (no, I'm not making this up) at around noon allowing for the 1 hour time difference. The hotel is small, quiet (so far) clean and comfortable. What's more, its only a stroll to Place dela Concorde and the Champs Elysees. Its even coser to the Galerie Lafayette (department store) and lots of cafes and restaurants.

We already have our Australian flags ready to wave on Sunday afternoon when Cadel Evans glides past in yellow (subject to a trivial formality in tomorrow's time trial).
