On Staurday they visited the Paris Aquarium at Trocadéro,
where they admired magnificent fish, sea urchins, starfish, carp, moray eels... Some looked just like Nemo and Dory from the Disney film. Then they went to see the sharks. Flat Brownie and Eleana were a bit afraid ! Then in another tank, there were beautiful fish that the children could actually touch. Eleana and Flat Brownie laughed quite a bit because the fish tickled their fingers! At the end of the visit, they watched a funny and interesting film called "The Shark Gang".
On Sunday, Eleana and Flat Brownie went to the Square des Batignolles in the 17th arrondissement of Paris (northwest). It's a beautiful park with a duck pond, swings, playgrounds, a sandbox, a little café and an authentic, old, French merry-go-round...

Eleana pointed out the many ducks, geese and black swan to Flat Brownie.
They went on the swings and took a spin on the merry-go-round that's over 30 years old because Eleana's dad used to ride on it when he was a child ! They had their picture taken in front of the merry-go-round as a souvenir.
Eleana had a great time hosting Flat Brownie !!
