Today was a wonderfully exciting day so full of activity I can’t begin to describe.
It is very late here, & I’ve put out the last of the little “fires” and ironed out the electronic bugs. I need sleep.
I wanted to quickly let you all know that the flights and arrival couldn’t have gone smoother. Everyone arrived with all their stuff and in one piece.
We dropped our bags off at the hotel and set off.
Nicoli, our guide, is AMAZING, and helped us break up into 3 groups to do our “free time” activities.
Some visited the Arch de Triumph, some went to the catacombs and the rest went to…….okay, I’m wiped out and can’t remember or begin to spell the name.
We met back up and went to dinner, cruised the river Seine and took a bus tour of Paris at dusk with a stop at the Eiffel Tower.
The boys are great and were very well behaved today. We have been treated with kindness and welcome everywhere we went and everyone had a blast for our first day.
I believe Hatcher blogged to the troop web site tonight and I am sending photos to Lynn next. We’ll get more detailed with these updates as we get acclimated but I just wanted to reassure all parents and family at home that we are here and fully enjoying ourselves.
More to come…
