Checking In From Paris

Checking In…

Paris Eiffel Tower at dusk

Just woke up and heard about the horrible attack in Nice. We’re fine, as far as we’re aware, everything in Paris is peaceful. We watched the fireworks last night from our balcony and then went to sleep. From what I’ve read, the Nice attack occurred at the conclusion of their fireworks/celebration.

Above was a scene from last night about an hour before the Paris fireworks started.

We’re going out as planned today, but our hearts are heavy for the people of Nice.

    Tyranny struck on the day France celebrates its liberation from tyranny.

    I know that view; love that café.

    Glad that all is well in Paris. Oddly enough, when I heard the news, I thought, “I wish that I was in France.” Maybe just to show solidarity with and sympathy for the country that I consider my second home, who knows.

    I’ll keep coming back. These attacks can (and unfortunately, do) happen anywhere.

    Glad you are far far away from Nice. I long for the days of safe travel.

    Susan, I’ve been enjoying your posts from England and now France. I also thought of you when the terrible news from Nice broke here. I’m glad that you and your Monsieur are safe and that you are having a good time in Paris. Vive la France…toujours!
