12/10/01 we took an overnight train from Salzburg to Paris. We arrived in Paris on 12/11/01. That day we went to Normandy and saw the U.S. cemetery. That was a really good day for all of us, and a sombering experience. After Normandy we took the train back to Paris and did the city tour by evening. Ate Greek, saw Notre Dame, and stayed in a cool hostel. I was really happy to be there. I would not voluntarily live in Paris, but it was a lot of fun. 12/12/01 we went to Versailles and the Eiffel Tour. Another Bryan, Molly, Brandon & Ashley sighting. That night the rest of my group took a train down to Barcelona. I stayed in Paris. My time consisted of 1) sharing the a room in the hostel with some guy from texas who was going to school to be a priest. 2) sleeping in until noon the next day 3) wandering around Paris practicing french with whoever would talk to me and 4) eating to my heart's content. Sadly, I have no pictures of this day, since I left almost all my film (and my camera) in Barcelona.
