& we are here! It has been a long, long trip so far. To start with, we left Japan and flew to Seoul, South Korea and stayed there overnight. Our connecting flight to Frankfurt was 11 hours, which truly was not so bad. Yes, it was long, but the food was good, there was room to breathe, and the scenery kept us engaged. Entertained ourselves with the map function on the video screen, trying to figure out where the heck we were. We flew over Mongolia, Siberia, St. Petersburg, Estonia, Latvia and Belarus to get to Frankfurt. We had an excellent though very short time in Frankfurt before finally getting to Paris last night.
Let me say, peeps, that arriving in Paris at night and hauling baggage through the metro does not imprint well on moi. I was not a happy girl schlepping les sacs across the Seine. But it all worked out. We are in an apartment in the 7th with a view of the Eiffel Tower from our living room, bellies full from a late lunch at Laduree and calories burned from all the walking!
It's not too cold here - much warmer than Germany - and we are all comfortable and happy.
Hoping your week leading up to Christmas is a fun one!
Hugs from Paris!
