... so I could easily figure out where I was.
The only people who speak English here are Museum personnel so I’ve had to be a little bit bolder and try my hand at French. I’m starting to understand more when I read stuff but I just can’t catch on when people speak. It’s frustrating. I am very proud of myself though for going out to a sit down dinner tonight though.

Chris gave me a memorial cross to place by Joe's name. I am yet to find out if any other member of the family has been here and if so I wonder how they felt.
