Cannot believe the crowds here shopping (and so Christmasy eeekkk!) except in looking at some of the shops and styles - wow! the clothes and shoes and jackets etc. And the prices have dropped considerably .... can understand the crowds. English economy is suffering which is reflected in prices we feel.
No rain today which is crazy
Got incredible seats for "We Will Rock You" with Queens music for tonite then home in a.m.
Couldn't end blog entry on #13 :) so this will end this trip blog. Thanks for being interested!! See each f you soon!
An absolutely fabulous read Rich and I have enjoyed this trip is "Sarah's Key" (buried in suitcase but I'll get author if you'd like to read it). I love to learn history through novels so found and ordered this one onlinebefore I left. Based in the area we stayed in in Paris during the Vichy times when the French police took the Jewish people from the Marais region on July 16, 1942 - really not very long ago at all -a terrible event in Paris that I really had not been very aware of. I could not put it down and neither could Rich once he started it. Beautifully written. Highly recommend! Great for that Book Club Chuckles. Have to find all that this author has written!
