We are on our way to Amsterdam to lead a four-day retreat with a few stops along the way. First Paris, where I got to engage my brain again with French, stayed with friends and Tara gave a lecture at the Apollo Theater. We stayed in the Marais Arrondisment... Just down from the Pompidou Center.
Top of D'Orsay
Epic flooding on the Seine.
A surprise march. About 100 mounted soldiers ... followed by a street cleaner.
Another surprise in the Marais. Carnivale!
Seven days of rain.
On to Switzerland for some hiking where we understand there is rain and then a bit more rain with a chance of snow.
