This one is of the French flag with the Eiffel Tower in the background. Kristi snapped this one when we were galavanting around Paris. I think she took about 5 pictures of this trying to time it when the wind would blow hard enough to get the flag to extend.
I promised some pictures from France, so here are a couple. The first of of myself and Priya standing in front of an aquaduct built by the Romans in Provence. The Pont du Gard aquaduct was built around the time of Christ in 14 BC to 15 AD.
The next picture is of the Palace of the Popes in Avignon. The popes moved from Rome in the 14th century when a disagreement between the current Pope and the French king led to the French king electing a new French Pope. We stayed in a hotel directly across from this palace. Every morning when we walked out the front door this is what we saw.
The final picture is of the village of Roussillon. This village is famous for its dyes which are derived from the colorful soil in the area.
We have more pictures from Paris that I will add soon. I also will try to post some pictures of Nyla at the pumpkin patch today.
I was hoping to be able to blog while I was in France and update where we went and what we did. Unfortunately, I didn’t have internet access as often as I thought I would. I will try to update the blog with a summary of where we went and what we did on each day.
It was a great time and we had great hosts in Kristi and Chris. Paris was wonderful and southern France (Avignon) was beautiful.
As much fun as we had, I am glad to be home and so happy to see Nyla. When I first saw her upon our return she looked so different to me!
We are currently in our hotel in Paris. We’ve been on a whirl-wind tour of the city. The jet-lag hit hard but we fought through it by visiting different places around town. I will blog some more later and put some pictures up when we return. A bientot!
