Back Home Again

More photos at link on sidebar under Eiffel Tower photo.

We're back from Paris. As usual, it was wonderful!! Even with the cold weather. P had a great time. She even walked up the 250+ steps to get to the top of the Arc of Triumph to take pictures (when we travel, I buy her a disposable camera so she can take her own pictures).

We traveled the city by train, and didn't get lost once. Paris is competing with New York City and a few others for the 2012 Olympics, and the way the city looks, you would think the decision was already made, and Paris would host the games. New York...you've got your work cut out for you!!

Saturday, we went to the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triumph, the Champs Elyeese (LOTS of shopping...nothing for me, everything for P!), lunch at Planet Hollywood, to the Galeries Lafayette (mall), and to a sushi restaurant for dinner.

Sunday, we went to Louvre (home of the Mona Lisa and 5 floors of other artwork), saw the Obelisque, fed the ducks and pigeons (why is there always one missing a foot?) and went to lunch near the National Opera. Then back to the train for the ride home (and to work on my project), while P watched The Sponge Bob Movie (and laughed rather loudly):




I don't think Crazy Dog had as much fun as we did. Before I could leave after dropping him off on Friday, another dog (his room mate) was taking advantage of him. The RA, Kevin, said the dog was just showing his dominance. I understand, but that doesn't mean CD had to take it as casually as he did. When I picked him up today, Kevin said he had to separate them Saturday morning, because the other dog kept 'dominating' CD. Needless to say, he was happy checkout day was today.
