Making it to Paris in time for les Verts’s visit was arguably the biggest concern we had in terms of the timing of our move here.  Many months before we landed on this distant shore, Nez’s dad had asked whether we were 99% sure we were moving to Paris or 100% sure.  Only if the answer were the latter would he proceed with les Verts’s travel plans.  Being eternally optimistic and a bit bombastic, we did not hesitate to respond, “100%.”  We arrived in Paris with our suitcases a mere 12 days ahead of Nez’s sister and her family.

Take her on a row boat down the Grand Canal.  This is probably not even on the to-do list of most of the visitors to Versailles, which is a shame.  Would you rather tell your grandkids of the time you spent a quiet afternoon alone with grandma/grandpa, gliding through the canal of Louis XIV or the time you jostled with a stuffy, smelly crowd through a series of mostly empty rooms?
