... in over 24 hours and the rest of us are feeling kind of caught up after last night. Now though we will be on trains to Paris for a little less then 24 hours. So let's hope we all get some sleep on this over night train or were going to be miserable the couple days in Paris. I've taken 5 years in school of French and I barely know any of it anymore.
