We're Back, Baby!

Not quite back to our ol' Canuck-ey home yet, but back to Gay Paree after our European jaunt-o-rama.

And by Gay Paree, here I do mean gay. We are residing close to the Latin Quarter, where the rainbow flag flies proud and free next to the bleu, blanc et rouge stripes.

Interestingly enough, Rue de GLAAD intersects with Avenue du Falafel, replete with kosher delis and Shoah museums. It's a fascinating intersection, and one worth many an afternoon of observation, pastis and some nasty cheese.

I have tried in vain to document this expedition in order (because the OCD Baroness is ALL about the order), but have run into a plethora of difficulties. Maybe they are the "normale" for these parts; I just do not know.

I am unable to cut and paste my fabulous (?) tourist pictures, so you will have to wait patiently for "Lessons from the Louvre". September IS just around the corner, after all, so all my ed-ju-ma-katin' of y'all will tie in nicely.

WiFi is also, apparently, either hard to find without one of those wicked cool watches from SkyMall, or when it can be found, is ridiculously expensive. I am grateful for your patience - it will all work out once I'm back in front of my own computer, biensur!

Today, we re-meet with our darling Duke 2, who has had a truly cultural exchange (some would say "shock"). Our plan is to run him to ground during the day, and then he and I will attend the Paris production of "Le Roi Lion". I'm strictly there for the costumes, and I'm sure we'll be able to socially ostracize ourselves once again by singing all the songs. In English. Because we've seen the g.d. video at least 1000 times.

Who knows? We could be starting something - like those "Sound of Music" sing-a-longs.

Yeah, we're back, baby.

Hakuna Matata.
