Paris

 

ah, Paris...

we arrived in Paris following an all-nite flight at about 6:30am.  the view from the plane was wonderful - green patchwork countryside with white house, red roofs.  a quick trip thru customs and a hop on the train and we were in Paris.  ready for an all-day march thru the streets of Paris!
