We got into our apartment and we immediately smelled smoke. Unfortunately, it wasn’t a fire in the fireplace. It stunk like an ashtray full of cigarettes. We think someone smoked in the bathroom of our non-smoking apartment. Whenever we open the front door, we nearly choke. We went to the store and bought all kinds of scented candles and air freshener sprays and we keep the windows open whenever we are home – it is helping a little bit.
The TGV train ride was really boring, but, we went fast, and the scenery was good. It did have a cool seat/light control, but the seats were not very comfortable. We arrived in Paris in the early afternoon to the smokehouse. Yuck.
