Morning Walks

Amanda gets up every morning between 7 and 8 to go walking at Luxembourg Gardens. I usually try to join her but I am typically up late working (usually till 2a) so it's tought to get up that early.

We walk counter-clockwise around the inner perimeter 3 times, which she estimates to be 4.5 to 5 miles although I think it is closer to 4. It takes about an hour to complete. At 4 mph, which is a pretty brisk walk, especially for a woman, it would take an hour to walk 4 miles.

I estimate about 100 people walking/running at the same time including a group of firefighters wearing their sapeur-pompier t-shirts.

It's as close to perfect a walking course as you could have surrounded by trees and flowers and statues and ponds and fountains and the French Senate.
