Bonjour Amis!

5 Comments

We’ve made it!  I’m sitting here now in a little Parisian hotel, typing out this message while my mom gets ready.   My brother sits next to me, map in hand, planning out our ventures for the day. 

Yesterday was insane, but we made it.  A long flight with awful turbulence, not being able to find my brother from the get-go (and no way to communicate with him), 33 hours without sleep, and a trek to our hotel complete with three subways, miles of walking, 27 or so flights of stairs with bags in hand:)  We had to laugh!

But we are here.  And yesterday was like a dream.  So far, we’ve hiked the L’Arc de Triumphe to witness an incredible view of Paris.  As I rounded the top of the monument, the Eiffel Tower caught me off guard.  I had to catch my breath.  It is more astounding than I ever fathomed. 

My brother looks good.  Actually, he looks French to me.  And his French is amazing!  I am so impressed!  He is getting us around the city with ease.  He is more fluent than I had anticipated.  More fluent than I ever was after three years in Korea.  We couldn’t be more proud. 

Well, we are ready to explore.  Museums are in the plans for today.  More updates to follow!

Au revoir!

  2. Yeah! Brent and I will be in Paris for just a quick 24 hours in September so when you get back let me know what is a MUST SEE! HAVE FUN!!!! Tell your bro ‘hi” for me… I still remember canoeing with him at camp 🙂

    • Oh my Court! How fun! You can get a lot in with 24 hours, since everything is in the same vicinity. You guys will love it here!

      Dan says hi also. And he can’t believe you can remember that canoe ride!
