Paris – And we’re back!

Squeaked back into Denver last night just before the big snowstorm.

We had a wonderful time. The weather was very cooperative (the forecast had been for rain the entire week, and it held off till late Wednesday), the apartment was super and very centrally located, the kids were great.

We used disposable cameras to take pictures, so I won’t have any to post for a couple of days. Rather than trying to do an exhaustive data dump, I’m going to post over the next couple of days.

    Please tell me if your apartment in Paris was w/c accessible and for let. I use a wheelchair 100% of the time and am travelling to Paris for the first time !! I could greatly benefit from your knowledge !

    Definitely not 100% accessible

    The courtyard door had a 5-6″ lip.

    The apartment door was wide enough to get a 30″ wheelchair through, but there is a step DOWN into the apartment.

    The wheelchair would not fit through the bathroom door. The bathtub was just plain weird; the side of the tub was probably 2’6″ high. The tub is about 3′ long by 1’6″ wide; the rear end of the tub is shaped into a seat, so if you can get into it, you can sit. No grab bars around the tub or the toilet.
