Today is my birthday. Yep, the big 4-0! And because this is a monumental birthday (I'M STILL ALIVE), I wanted to do something big. Not just cake. Not just some balloons. Something BIG. So, I'm off to Paris and London for a fun-filled week. I can't wait. So au revoir USA and Bonjour Paris!
I will see the Eiffel Tower. I will eat cheese and french chocolate. I will walk by the Seine River, perhaps even take a boat ride. I will watch artists paint and visit gardens and museums.
The thing that is slightly scary about this whole trip is that despite having had 3 yrs of French classes in high school and enough French in college to earn a BA, I can't speak a lick of French. I can count to ten. I can ask, "Parlez vous, Anglais?" But that's about it. Still, I can't wait to get lost in France.
A taste of Paris for you, my friends. Enjoy! When I come back I will post pics of my time there. Not a lot-- I won't bore you to death like relatives who make you watch hours and hours of vacation movies :) I promise.
