I'm back! I feel like I've been through an epic battle, but I'm here.

I had a good time and we saw a lot of cool things, but I think I can say that France and I don't really click. I didn't love it the first time and this time wasn't hugely different. I understand the basics of the culture but I think it's just not my thing. It didn't help that the time of year meant it was surprisingly hot and the sun never went down. After a while it seemed like the universe was conspiring to make the experience constantly unpleasant. But in the end it was nice traveling with my brother, and we have a lot of new memories, so it was definitely worth it.

Best: catacombs, Paris gay pride parade and seeing Les Miserables in the heart of the city and getting front row seats for around $30 each. Awww yeah.

I enjoyed being temporarily out of the loop, but now I just want to roll around and eat American junk food and watch tv forever. We had to transfer to a domestic flight in Texas, and the people were so friendly and smiley and I was like ommmgg ilu guys. I also hadn't slept in a day and was half crazy, but whatever. Also, milk! I still can't figure out the European milk system so I was milk-deprived and I normally live on milk so that's bleh.

So I'm glad to be home, and now that I have my own computer I can finally write again. I planned out the next chapter, but my fingers are too meaty and slow for hand writing. But first I have to hug my bunny until he hates me.

I wonder, do they perform Les Miserables in French? Probably, right?

It does happen, but this one was in English with French subtitles. It was interesting because the actors were from France or random parts of the UK, so there was a huge range of accents, from authentic Parisian to Scottish and Welsh and so on. Very cool, and probably something I won't get to see again.
