Paris – gluten free treats, a dark rainy Eiffel Tower view, and the Mona Lisa

I’m sitting here in Hong Kong Airport – one of the few with entirely free WiFi, and a few hours to kill before the last leg of our journey – a flight home to Auckland.

We have had 3 days in Paris, notable for it’s elegant slim population, many of whom smoke.
