Londoners are so lucky they can just hop on the Chunnel and arrive a la coeur de Paris for the weekend if they wanted. In Vancouver we have Seattle. It's great but it's no Paris.
It's 1am and I'm again wide awake so thought I'd blog on my phone again even though Its at 36% battery life and my charger won't work here cause the adapter I brought is for uk only. What up Europe?? No standardization??
So today as my mom was boarding a train I noticed a girl uncomfortably close behind her. She had her hand covered with a scarf and it was reaching out toward my moms backpack. She may have just been reaching forward to board the train but my instincts tell me otherwise.
I immediately slapped her hand down hard. She looked shocked so I mumbled a whoops excusezmoi and wedged myself in between her and my mother.
This was the second run in with pickpocketing for her. At London heathrow a well dressed man also had his hand under a scarf and my mom caught him trying to unzip her backpack.
Anyway. It didn't dampen our spirits as we wandered the estate of Versailles and strolled along on it's property and gardens.
Just another fabulous day in Paris!! Tomorrow: sacre coeur, champs-élysées, Eiffel tower and of course, Chinatown.
