Today was our last day in Ypres, and in the morning we participated in the 'Coming World Remeber Me' art installation, which commemorated all 600,000 people, soldiers and civiloams alike, who died on Belgium soil during WWI.

We sat next to a couple from Atlanta who gave us some good tips for enjoying Paris. No poodles noticed yet - but have seen various other breeds. Pierre (soft toy mouse) has officially joined us and you might see the odd photo of him appearing from now on. He's going to come back to school with me and be the library ...
