Fabulous trip to Claude Monet's Giverny - lots of train travel due to striking workers but made it through - fascinating watching the World of French folk from a train station and on the trains. Will add photo's soon - busy now with the Conference. Out to dinner with 8 others - Mexican friends and new Spanish friends - straining to understand conversation but good for the ears & mind. Sweet Marta and Beatrice - amazing to realize how long we've known them. Off on a tour of Paris bus ride 3 1/2 hours on bus - we're thinking of creating a disturbance if they hustle us around too much or don't let us off!! Headline in Paris newspaper: "Strange Canadian grandmother with Mexican and Spanish female friends hijack bus in central Paris". Photo's soon - Gala dinner is on the Seine tomorrow eve in a river cruise boat- need exercise - may swim behind - HEH!! it's frickin' cold here!!
