"What lies behind us, and what lies before us are small matters
compared to what lies within us."

We are in Paris!!! Right now it's 2 am. It is only about 50 degrees here. We went to the Effiel Tower, which I only did for my husband because I hate heights! Paris is not at all like I expected. To me, it's has a small town atmosphere. Families walking everywhere, kids even walk alone. Most people have been very nice. We got totally lost coming back to the hotel from the Effiel Tower. I think we walked for over an hour. We kept saying things looked familiar, but we were going in the wrong direction!!! There was a restaurant called the "Cafe Brassiere" that we saw several times, so we thought we knew where we were, but there were actually many Cafe Brassieres"! A man took the time to walk us the right street.

I don't think anyone noticed what I was wearing because they were too busy looking at the woman in the skin tight pants with stilettos. Sorry, I couldn't get a picture!

We ate french fries!

We met the nicest guy who owned this little restaurant.

Look at this cool tunnel at the Paris airprot. It's an enclosed moving sidewalk.

Of course, my stomach is being funky already!

Miss you all! In just three days, we will actually meet Nastya and Moira!!!

  3. We went to Paris for our honeymoon!! I LOVE that city!! An 85 year-old man walked us 20 blocks to the Catacombs (which ended up being closed for repair!!) because he didn't want us to get lost!! There really are so many nice people there! Enjoy a bit of relaxation!!
