I hope they did, anyway, since we passed several groups of Posted by skyisblu in Parisian Holiday 2015 | Jan 1, 2015
  • Rain, rain, go away! Let me get out of this slump.Never say that you've wasted a day. Any day can be recovered and turned into something worth talking about in just a few hours.

  • Wandering Another day woken up with the news, but with no new revelations in either the Charlie Hebdo story, nor the metro shooting, we give up on watching an endless loop of video and head out to wander through Posted by skyisblu in Parisian Holiday 2015 | Jan 8, 2015
  • Happy New Year - here's a parade!It's amazing how a little morning sleep can stretch one day into what seems like two full days.

  • Arrival in VillefrancheAlthough Nice is the fifth largest city in France (450,000), the airport is very small.

  • Visit to Cap Ferrat and Villa RothschildCame out of the apartment today and saw the funniest thing...a city worker walking along our path with a spray bottle of rose water and he was watering all the places where a dog had peed!

  • Time to go homeThe rain stopped overnight, and it is partly sunny. So glad we didn't have to drag our bags down all those stairs in the rain. Our bags would have been drenched. Shelley stopped by to say hi. Posted by barb3389 in Barb and Paul's Adventures Abroad | Oct 2, 2015
