Language is an interesting thing ... Without being a thing. Together Steve and I have been quite fluent. He can read anything and conjugate sentences quite well and I have vocabulary to contribute. In the moment, though, I sometimes get something wrong. I bought some cherries from a vendor and as I took the bag I attempted to say, Good day! But I said Good God!

Then I burst out laughing while he watched me quizzically.

The cherries were scrumptious.

We walked the Champs d'Elyses today, from the Louvres to L'Arche de Triumph through the Elyses shopping district. The sun came out and shone too hot and then the clouds covered the sun and we felt the wind.

Travel is like education. The more you do it the more you realize personal limitations of time, space and understanding.

By the way. Today I bought a scarf on the Champs d'Elyses. Don't be jealous of my scarf.
