... Lining up for the 'priority' entry, waiting for the audio that really did not work, trying to find the audio channels, trying to see anything amidst the surging tide of tourists all photographing, photographing, just because - it was almost an endurance event. Added to this (oh no) we went the WRONG WAY!!! Big mistake. French history backwards. So confusing.
