I love flowers and couldn’t help taking a million pictures when I saw them. As a result, I was doing all kinds of closeups. What was so amazing to me were the window boxes full of flowers? Elsie had asked “How do they keep them so nice and water them?”. That was a very good question because many are in very high places. How and whatever they do, they are just beautiful.
Well, I’m back, and we had a wonderful time. The plane ride back was a bit difficult because I came down with the flu while on the 11 hour flight. Not the best way to end a fabulous trip but mother nature had other plans. With the help of the flight crew and an onboard doctor I made it home and went straight to bed. After recovering from the flu, I started to go through the million pictures I had taken. It occurred to me, to truly share the whole experience I would not be able to do that in just one post.
That’s right, I’m off on an adventure.
Over the years, we have hosted many foreign exchange students. All of them hold a very special place in our hearts. The last one was from France. We have watched her grow into an amazing young women who is now on the eve of her wedding. I am going there for the wedding and to celebrate this amazing time in her life with her warm and gracious family. By the time you read this, I will be over the Atlantic well on my way to Paris. I will be gone for two and half weeks. With my camera and iPad in tow, I will be recording all that we see and do. So rest assured, I will be sharing my experiences with you in a blog post or two.
