Saturday evening was given over to a dinner "The Australians are in town" organised by Steve with a bit of help here and there. As you'll have read elsewhere or seen the video of Sue(suvanki) it turned into quite an emotional evening as Howard declared his unremitted love for Ann in the shape of an eternity ring. Brilliant stuff that merited the congratulations of all present.
On to the dinner itself at "La Varangue" at rue Augereau a short distance from the Eiffel Tower. A "kir" was first served by Philippe, the boss, and followed by a duck salad. A choice of pork filet mignon, beef bourguignon or confit of duck followed.Finished off with the cake of the house smothered in chocolate. All this topped by pitchers of red and white wine. All this to allow us to get back to the Champ de Mars to witness the light show on the Tower (but that's another travelogue).

Kirsty and David looking serious with Catherine, Don and Isa in the background.

Our three "belles Anglaises" flying the flag in their corner. Not one of them would admit to having touched that pitcher of water..... They blamed it on Dave who was still recovering from his ealier exertions of getting out of bed!!!!

Gillian, Alyson and Sue.

Penelope holding the bottle to stop Bernd from drinking more than his due.

Bernd looking happy to be surrounded by a bevy of not so local beauties.

Bernd, Sonja, Francesca and Valerie.

Steve and Howard waithing for their own "crash" with Don, Dave, Gillian and Diana seen in the mirror.

The "Oh ***" poster depicts a train crash that really happened at the Montparnasse station in Paris in 1895.
