I've been home for more than 12 hours now, but my brain still feels a bit sloshy, so this may be a little scattered.
Paris was wonderful. Simply wonderful. As instructed; I took photos (hundreds and hundreds of them); ate many a lovely pastry, and walked until I couldn't walk any more. Right now, I'm in the midst of going through my photos, unpacking, and digesting. It is good to be home.
