Monday, Aug. 14, 2006 OK - DAY 4! SO...First of all please forgive any spelling errors...this French keyboard is a challenge! Our trip has been fantastic thus far. After flying through the night we arrived in Paris on Saturday morning. We dropped our bags at 9:00AM and walked straight to the Louvre where we got to hang with the Mona Lisa and the Venus de Milo. Then the rain began...and continued until this morning. Yesterday were the 1000 year old cathedrals of Notre Dame and Sainte Chapelle. I think we have gone through about seven bottles of French wine and ten kinds of cheese and breads so far. Lindsay has been a complete godsend: her French has carried us throughout our stay. Today we are on our way to Milan and then down to Florence for one night. I will send another update as soon as humanly possible! Pictures will follow ASAP. AU REVOIR!
