Paris

We had a more relaxing day in Verviers yesterday.  After a relaxing morning we headed over to visit Michel’s parents.  I had not seem them in 25 years or so, so it was very nice.  We also saw Christine — Michel’s sister.  We then took a relaxing drive to see the town.  We visited the US soldier cemetery for soldiers that fought in WWII.

Then we stopped in to visit Saffo, who is a leader in a youth camp.  She wanted to see us before we left so we took her out to a café for a drink.

Michel and Brigitte were also kind enough to host Dominique Van Cappellen-Waldock for dinner so we could see her again.

This morning it was off to Paris.  Michel and Christine have agreed to give us a non-tourist tour of Paris so we will not be visiting La Louvre, Le tour Eiffel or the arch de triumph.

We got checked into our hotel and then we took a walk through the Bastille area of town.  Besides Michel and Brigitte, you can see National Archives and then we went to Place des Vosges and had a drink.  There are art galleries all around so we spent time checking out each gallery.

After that we walked back to get ready for a special dinner Michel has planned for us.  Here are a few shots from our walk back.

This memorial is the site of the bastille prison for those of you that are aware of your French history.
