Like I said in the previous post, the meeting organization set up for us to have a nice dinner and after party at a place called L'Etoile. The place was right off the Champs D'Elysees, right around the corner from the Arc D'Triumph.
Before we got from our hotel in the Port D'Orleans section of town, they had us on a couple of double decker buses and we toured around the city and the main places of interest in Paris.
Le Tour D'Eiffel of course
The biggest Louis Vuitton store in the world! Of course I'm going to go tear that down before I leave.
The dinner was nice, it was more of a typical European cuisine. I wasn't in to it very much, so you know my motto, when all else fails, find a McDonalds. I found one about a five minute walk from where we were and the whole U.S. team had eaten there by the end of the night.
It was a very fun time. Intermingling with the athletes from the other countries and just spending time hanging out with your friends from the team is always a fun break from doing what we do on a regular basis.
Coach Karen Dennis from Ohio State was the women's coach.
My main man Steve Simmonds was the men's team coach, he use to run those sticks back in his day.
