Paris Snow

A cold wet and snowy day in the city
Of Light (snow & fog). We had lunch with one of our French exchange students Margo and her brother off the
Champ de Elsees and then went to the
Musee du quai Branly exhibit of indigenous art world wide. Very nice. Cafe and then we walked to the Eiffel tower in the snow after dark. Pics later.
Claire another one of our exchange
Students met us for dinner at the same
Place as last night and is staying overnight. Kali's boyfriend James flew in today, so we have a apt full.
Two episodes of 30 Rock and it time
For sleep!

Merry Xmas to All

I kept seeing Vespa references around town. It turns out they were manufactured here in the 60's under
license from Italy. Lots of scooters of all types sport bikes and some supermoto zipping around town.
Thanks for the history Nicolas      (  KTM in the snow outside Kali's door )
