Oh, zut alors!

Well, we've certainly been busy. The Louvre, Latin Quarter, my old digs, etc. Went up to Sacre Coeur and climbed the famous steps.

Julia and Lisa went to Versailles alone today as I have a fever. I crawled out of the apartment to send emails and will write more later.

Stinky to be sick, but hey, sick in Paris is only SO bad so I guess I won't whine too much. :)

Yes, we are here!

Here we are! Ok, well I'm behind the lense here. But Lisa and Julia toast to finally ariving after 18 hrs of travel. Our brains are scrambled from fatigue and jetlag.

But I am desperately happy to be back in Paris again!

Ok, so we're packed!

So, today's the day. We've been planning for 2 years and here we go!! We, well at least I, have managed to pack our carry-on with only 13 lbs of stuff. But boy I've got a big purse!

I'm always nervous that we'll show up at the airport and they'll say, "Who?" Especially with no real ticket in hand. But it's worked smoothly before and I have no reason to think it won't this time either.
I've figured out how, exactly, we'll get into Paris from the airport and then where the metro stop is and where to get off.

I'm planning to have us crash for a while, eat, then do a boat ride on the Seine.

Pics to follow!!

The picture above is from the Tuilleries Gardens, looking across the Seine and into the 7th arrondisement. The little dome is where my room was.

Almost time to go...

With all of the things going on in my life right now, I can hardly believe it's almost time to go. I'm trying to make check lists so I don't forget the obvious things, you know, like underwear or passports!

Normally I love to read and pour over books and web sites, anticipating a trip. But this time, it hasn't been possible. I sort of feel like I've been breathlessly running in circles and I'll wake up there.

Hope I remember the key!

This is a photo taken when Emily and I were in Paris in 2006. It's from the base of Sacre Coeur.
