Home via Paris

We had breakfast at a patisserie since the corner café was closed on Sunday. We took the more direct train into Paris and stored our luggage in a locker in Gare de l'Est station. We then went to the Musee des Arts et Métiers, where we enjoyed free admission and lots of models, but we found most of the interactive exhibits out of order.

We then went back to Sainte Chapelle so I could see it and Jessie could enjoy it with more time and better light than before. Afterward we needed a restroom break which (as before) took an extremely long time. Jessie's feet were bothering her after all the walking of the day before, but we managed one last stroll along Ile de Cite on our way back to our luggage.

I had booked us one last Airbnb near the airport. Our host was in Switzerland, but his parents let us in and offered us a 20€ ride to the airport in the morning, which was a good deal.

Our flight home was uneventful. The plane was much more spacious and less packed than on the way out, so we slept better. Unfortunately I started to feel a cold coming on, which laid me up for most of the next two weeks, and then Jessie caught it! But better then than during the trip! It was an amazing and unforgettable adventure.
