|A sweet view of the Eiffel Tower. This is not the best picture - I'm saving that one for the account of our anniversary!|
|Some excitement in the streets of London|
We left Africa on October 3rd and headed to London. We were there for 7 nights, and enjoyed seeing many of the popular sights there. We also went to a place that had wonderful spiritual significance to us, and I can't wait to tell you about that! On the 9th, we took the Eurostar train under the English Channel to Paris and spent a beautiful 5 days there. We enjoyed a relaxed day on our 30th anniversary. The pace in Paris was a little slower than in London, simply because there wasn't as much that we were interested in seeing. The city of Paris is beautiful, with all its old buildings and iron balconies - I loved just taking a bus and riding through the streets just to see all the beautiful buildings.
|The English like their coffee strong! I had 4 packets of sweetener and most of that little pot of rich, heavy cream in my cup, and it still had a bitter edge to it!|
We took lots of pictures of the entire trip, but we have yet to get them all sorted out and ready to post. I will take the next couple of weeks to tell you all about our trip and show you lots of pictures. Wes is planning to make a video to present to our church family, and hopefully I'll be able to share that with you too.

That's all for now! Stories and more pictures coming soon!
