Subject: Re: Travelling or staying home this year?
Hi, Ziners... We went to Paris in April, and my parents were concerned, but from all we'd read, we felt that it would be fine, and it was. The French were wonderful! We didn't even see any demonstrations. Only one time did we feel that there was even any talk about the war. We had gone to the rue Mouffetard on Sunday, when there's dancing and singing, from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Most of the crowd appeared to be French, and it was a wonderful experience. At the end, they sang La Marseillaise... then, one of the older female performers began speaking very emotionally, and from the few words we could understand, we felt she was speaking about the French position on the war. The crowd applauded, and then it was over... people began leaving.
