Transmitting From Paris, France... One of my favorite places on Earth! Such a beautiful city!! We're in a nice hotel that we stayed at the last time we were here. About a 10 minute walk from the Champs Elysees. We had a bit of a hard time finding a restaurant in the neighborhood that looked decent & was open (it's Sunday, after all) so we decided to eat at the hotel. A little expensive but the food was good. (VERY expensive if you wanted to drink. Luckily, I stuck with water). The train ride was an adventure but we made it. It was just the 6 of us in the band travelling & we had to switch trains once in Brussels. No road manager, just us. The hardest part was having to lift my 60 lb. suitcase (with some help) into the overhead luggage rack twice. Nice trains, though, especially the leg from Brussels to Paris where we were in 1st class. (Free food & drink & electric reclining seats). Tomorrow we're at the Olympia which is kind of like the Carnegie Hall of Paris. Never played there before so I'm really looking forward to it. Then onto our 'travel-show-travel-show' schedule until heading home on the 20th. No more days off. It'll be a busy 10 days or so but we'll have some more fun stops along the way which I'll detail more over the next few days. More soon...
