Well, I am starting a blog to keep my friends/family included in our fabulous trip to Paris. We leave in the morning and I am still doing research and trying to make reservations for various hotels. The hotels do have websites and communicate to potential patrons via email but trying to actually reserve a room has been a challenge. I called over there all prepared to say, "Bonjour. Parlez-vous anglais?" (Hello, do you speak English?) but I got a recording that was obviously trying to get me to either leave a message, choose an option from a list, or order a french poodle - I couldn't tell and hung up. Is this how the trip will go? "Ah, silleee Amerecans." I am still waiting to hear from some chateau's. Hoping to stay in an actual french castle!
I will keep you posted and upload pictures if I am not drop dead tired every night!
