I managed to connect with my pre-arranged shuttle service that would take me to my hotel. That was easy enough except that it was a bit delayed due to heavy traffic.....yes, Paris is just like the rest of the big cities of the world......traffic congestion, delays, etc. It all worked out very well, though.
I arrived at my little hotel, the Hotel Paris France, which I found by research online. I was excited about seeing it as I expected it to be rather authentic, nothing stuffy, neighborhood-like, etc. It did not disappoint. I arrived early afternoon and was able to go right to my little room on the 6th floor.
Down the passage-way just behind the hotel and just across the street is a Monoprix......a smallish store for all kinds of miscellaneous items plus a great grocery/food department! I bought this insulated bag to bring a few things back to the hotel to have on hand for snacks and munching if I got hungry and didn't want to go out.
