Our first stop was Paris. After traveling
all night, waiting for hours to take the train into the city, lugging our
luggage (no pun intended) through the Metro system, we finally emerged into the
bright sunlight - right across the Seine from Notre Dame. Mom was yakking
to me about something and had her back to the river. She didn't even see
Notre Dame. I put my hands on her shoulders, and turned her around.
She was so overwhelmed - I thought she was going to cry!
It was a fabulous trip. Every day brought
something new, and a great addition to our adventure.
