Yay ride the Metro! We kept having people approach us to talk to us.
Even after we told them we didn’t understand them!
What part of ``Je ne parle pas francais’’ don’t people understand?
But they were trying to befriend us.

Walking the Champs-Elysees – so glamorous!
They light up all the trees at night.
