  1. wow, that’s pretty impressive … when is the trip to Russia & China planned? I had a GREAT time in Paris – found everyone was very friendly, i wasn’t expecting it, so was pleasantly surprised.

  2. Last time I was in Gay Paree, the reception was as Monsueir, NFO said. We saved their butts two times in 50 years and they still looked down their long Gallic noses at us!

  3. Well, I liked Paris, telling my son if he didn’t behave I would turn him into a Gargoyle on Notre Dame (we were wandering up there with them) could have spent more time with the Art but was convinced that burning Paris might have stopped the re-selling of every old thing around to tourists. But I noticed, not personally, that those French couples would be lip locked for a long, long time – manikins?

  4. Julie- Not any time soon!

    Ev- Yep, they just flat don’t like us…

    Earl- The Louvre would be fantastic in some place like oh say, London! 🙂 Yeah, they did lip lock for ever, I wonder how/if they were breathing 🙂
