Bon Jour Everyone

We're in Paris!!!

I have so much to say but this computer keyboard is so different from an American keyboard that I don't think I will be able to type fast enough to say it all. The English keyboards were slightly different, but this one is almost like relearning the entire thing!

So briefly...

We did finally make it into Westminster Abbey.

We made reservations for a room in Paris just an hour before we left on the train.

We're in fucking Paris!!!!!!!!

A lot of tourists, a lot of Parisians speak English, at least a little bit. Which is exponentially more than I speak French. We bought a phrase book. We do better by making use of lots of "sign language".

Today we have:

Figured out how to get around by tube.

Went to the top of the Eiffel Tower.

Ate at a Vietnamese restaurant.

Climbed to the bell tower at Notre Dame. The gargoyles are soooooooooooo cool!

Walked along the Seine and a boulevard full of pet shops and flower shops.

Saw a guy on a bike get clipped by a car and go sailing. He was incredibly lucky. People helped him up, saved his cell phone from getting crunched by traffic, and he was bruised but alive.

The Louvre - it is open Wednesday evenings until 10 p.m. The Louvre!!!!!!!!!

William figured out we've been to almost all the places in The Da Vinci Code on this trip.

It's taken me almost a half hour to type this. Sorry to make this so concise. How boring.

For you. But not for us. We're in Paris!!!!!!!!!

Au revoir!
