Subject: Re: Paris and the French

Glad to hear that you echo my sentiments. You took a Rick Steves Tour? I thought that he was one to not go to the touristy places? so I'm surprised about what you say about the tour group. However, now that you've been there, you can see why it's not necessary to go with a tour. It's easy to get about on your own. I've been to Australia 4 times and would never think of taking a tour. My husband and I are looking forward to our 5th trip to Oz perhaps in the fall. Bon Journee, Candice
