Reviendrons á Paris!!!!
Dollar-Euro exchange rate be damned!!!
We bit the bullet and booked our flight for October (and already had trouble getting the dates/times we wanted using our frequent flyer miles to upgrade...according to the airline reservation guy people book up to 351 days ahead!). So we're only in Paris for five days, counting the day we arrive jet-lagged at 7am, but we'll know our way around and have already started to plan our itenerary based on what we weren't able to fit in last May. Top of the list are Musée Marmottan, Musée Picasso, Bon Marché, Jardins Luxembourg and actually climbing the stairs to the tops of Montmartre and Notre Dame now that I'll have a functioning hip to allow such.
We'll also be in NY for four days on the way back (had originally hoped for 7 in Paris, 3 in NY but had to go with available flights) so will have plenty of time to do some museum hopping there too and see a show or two.
