Paris Visit

I'm happy to report that my jet lag is subsiding, and our family is beginning to recognize a familiar routine that was briefly mared by a neck strain for the child. I suppose if you never had a cramped neck, waking up on morning with such a thing might freak you out. We spent two days trying to convince that child that stretching her neck would help. The doctor tried, I tried, the hubby tried, and finally the massage therapist/friend was able to rub out those kinks.

Paris was wonderful, though much too hot for a city that has very infrequent AC. Texas may be hot as hades, but we have AC everywhere, making only that dash between car and building unbearable.

I had a great B&B location:

With a lovely courtyard that was quiet and pleasant--and delivered a cooling breeze.

My conference was at the Sorbonne, so I stayed very close to the Luxembourg Garden and Pantheon area.

I love that there are French writers buried in this church of the people.

I have additional pictures and some knitting stories, but they will have to wait until my next post.
