Our flight arrived in Paris on time and all of our luggage arrived with us! We are both somewhat surprised that it finally did work out after all. Our flights had to be re-booked several times during the trip to keep up with conditions. At one point we had so many tickets we couldn’t keep them straight. The cab ride to our hotel was about half as much as we had expected so things are still going well. The only down note is that it is raining here now. I have not yet looked at the forecast so we will see about that later.

It is Ascension Day here in France, apparently that is a national holiday so all of the stores are closed. I do not know what the Ascension is about, maybe someone can tell us.
