Je Suis Une Americaine-Barbadian en Paris; A Bientot!

Hello, Barbadophiles,

A couple of weeks ago, when I stopped posting regularly, I didn’t forget to mention I’d be going on holiday.  I had simply deluded myself into believing I’d be able to continue to post even while traveling.  But that proved too difficult, with iffy internet connection and numerous trains away from internet altogether and evening tiredness after exploring all day.

So I apologize for dropping from sight.  Greg and I return to Barbados on Saturday the 26th. As much as I love Paris and the English countryside where we’ve been enjoying ourselves with dear friends, I do miss my island and will be happy to return home.

Enjoy life, all. Following are a truly random selection of photos.

Greg and I took a wonderful tour with Paris Walks -- the subject of the tour? Chocolate!  It was wonderful.

Eastbourne, again. It was beautiful but not Barbados-beautiful (see below).
