Edit Blog Post
Published: July 29th 2008
From Matt - Have been back home for several days now, gone through lots of pictures and added over 50 to the pages where there were none before. If you are still interested I have added pics to the following blog entries : Catch Up; Amber Mountains; 3 Amigos...; Waiting in Joburg and Paris at last... . Vance and Rush have the best safari pics so there will be more animal pictures when I get them from Vance.
This will probably be the last blog and I had a few things still to say about our last stop - Paris. Still expensive but oh so worth it. Contrary to popular belief Paris is a very friendly place! Even with our lousy Tex-French we got along with everyone. This was my second visit to Paris and both times I had been warned about how unfriendly the Parisians were. We did not find a single unfriendly Parisian!!
The food was great. No, we did not have any snail! Maybe next time.
Paris is very international. People from all over the world make Paris their home. Many languages are overheard everywhere. The multi-ethnic clothing that you see is a reflection of the people of the city. At anytime you could be in the Orient or in Africa somewhere or a mall in N. America. I know from the news they do not always get along but at least they are trying. My hat is off to this great city and to its wonderful people. I look forward to going back again.
I will take every one off the mailing list after I get this sent so that you won't accidentally get anymore email from travelblog.org. I highly recommend this site next time you take a trip and want to do a blog. A feature that was just added is "blog to book" and as soon as I get the rest of the photos I will turn our blog into a book and you can check it out at either Vances or my home sometime in the future.
Thanks again for taking so much interest in our adventure and for keeping us in your prayers and thoughts.
I look forward to reading about YOUR adventures.
