    As usual, we are enjoying your trip. Nice break from all the politics here. Trump is wearing me out. I wonder if you feel embarrassed for our country over there? France at least elected someone with some sense and intelligence when they went for change.

      Most people here feel as you do about Trump. It is a frequent topic. But they are somewhat undecided about Macron, waiting to see what he does, not what he says. Isn’t that always the case?

    We are enjoying every step of your days and nights! Speaking of steps, do you have a favorite kind/pair/brand of walking shoes? You always look so classy!

      You are so kind! This year I brought the fewest number of shoes I’ve ever brought…five pair. I have horrible arthritis in my feet so this is always an issue for me. My walking requirements are no wedge heels but no flat heels, some good support, open-air so my feet can breathe (except for my rainy day black shoes) and absolutely nothing between my toes like a thong. I spent almost 100 euros on a pair last year that have served me well by Luftpolster which I think is German. I try not to look like an old woman but that is harder and harder to achieve. Ha!

    Thank you for the photos of the Opera House! Watch out for the Phantom. Don’t forget to “hold your hand at the level of your eye”!

        Of course. All the unhappy democrats are amusing. Don’t ever apologize for being “so American.” Thank God we are. Safe travels.

    Hi Linda –
    Sharon has been telling me about your trips for yours and I am finally subscribing to your blog. What took me so long?
    Ralph and I have spent many very pleasant days just walking around Paris — no agenda, no destination, no schedule (other than meals, of course!). What a great city. Thanks for letting me share in your adventure.
