Woke up a few times during the night ("Gosh, it must be nearly morning!" Look at clock. "Oh. It's only quarter past two."), but I managed to get back to sleep pretty quickly each time. I had set my alarm for 7:00, but when it went off I reset it to 8:00. So, I woke up feeling not too bad, which I thought was pretty good for the first night. It's …

In one, I was some sort of vengeance demon, and I sneaked up on a small evil person and flung him into space. I don't know where that came from! Must've been the kir before dinner last night.

Today was a day trip to Chartres, France. It is an hour train ride out of Paris, and the countryside is just beautiful. So green and the buildings have the most beautiful gardens and tasteful color scenes. The train ride was very nice and upon arrival the church was a short walk. The antiqued buildings and cobblestone are so nice. Of course the cathedral has a great presence. It was nice to be away from the city and the hundreds of people - only a few tour groups today. I ...
