Monica and I have just returned from Paris. We went on a trip with my sister, her bloke and my Mum. We did all the usual touristy things, as well as things like the 'Musee des Egouts (which should be on anyone's 'must do' list). Photos from the trip are available on Flickr.
I'll gradually be catching up on emails etc over the next few days.
I practiced a fair bit of French, though none of it was formal L192 stuff (as was the intention - I took my books and everything).
Long term, that's not a bad thing, short term, I've still got a deadline that isn't getting further away!
