I finally have photos to upload - woo hoo! This is my last full day in France and I think I have walked every square inch of the place. Paris is fairly easy to navigate once you figure out the Metro system - even I, with no sense of direction, have not gotten terribly lost yet.
I have come to realize how truly awful my French is. Every time I try a phrase on a native Parisien, I get a totally blank look. Fortunately, most of them take pity on me and reply in English, "What?"
Anyway, my time is almost up. I still don't have my Amsterdam pictures on disc yet, I am still working on it. I leave tomorrow for a one-night stop in Reims (champagne country) on my way to Munich. I will keep you all posted!
