Puppets at Jardin du Luxemborg
The highlight of today's adventure in Paris was a trip to see the famous Puppet Show in the Jardin du Luxemborg. The theatre has been around since 1933 and is a tradition here with the children to come on a Wednesday as they have no school on this day.
Lucy laughed and clapped at 'The Metamorphoses of Prince Charming'. A funny tale about a prince that was turned into a squirrel and back again to be with his love. The whole play was in french so I did my best to translate to Lucy what was happening. It didn't matter because she laughed anyway, it was really funny. A stroll along Rue de Rennes in the late afternoon and a squashed, hot train ride back to our apartment and we were all ready for bed.
