We Made It

Let me say at the outset that I am typing on a french keyboard so this will be short and sweet!  This keyboard does not like me, and all the letters are in different places.

We arrived fine....well, two things did happen on the outset. The name on my ticket and the name on my passport did not match. I mainly got stares and tisk tisk from officials, but I made it through. In New York, Scott realized he left ALL his cash at home, and I only had 60 dollars on me.  Thank goodness the ATM at the Paris airport worked.

We bought roasted chicken and potatoes at an outdoor market yesterday for dinner... yum.

Today we walked 7 hours. We ate, had café and generally enjoyed the day through off and on sprinkles.  Found an awesome leopard purse but we were on St. Germain, so I knew it was too much.

Oh... spent the morning at a flea market.  May go back tomorrow. It was a bit overwhelming, but I did buy an old rusty key for 1€.  This was not the Ham Fair, which we will visit next week.

This computer keeps beeping me and I am exhausted, so I will say goodnight for now.

We are having more fun than this sounds... LOL.

Glad you both have arrived and are ready to see Paris, the places you have seen before and places you are yet to go (mmmm, that sounds like Dr. Seuss).

Oh, How I chuckled when you talked about typing on the French keyboard! I've been there and it's amazing how it slows you down! Glad you arrived safely!
