Au revoir!


New entries start with #12; parking looks chaotic, gas is extremly expensive and Paris driving looks like a distressing "adventure"); With no reason to rent a car here, we take the Metro everywhere; it's clean, cheap, safe and runs until 2am; Holly's internal compass assists in reading the French Metro maps. Its our last day here so off to Slovenia for 2 days; then we're back for a lazy driving trip north to the Normandy coast; we miss evryone alredy - hope all is well!
