Greetings from Paris. We have settled into our hotel in the Latin Quarter not too far from Notre Dame. We said goodbye to Al and Dex last night, and they're probably almost home by now. We boarded the Eurostar just after noon and were whisked to Paris at just under 300 km/hr. We boarded the Metro and Scritch promptly got pick-pocketed by some niggers. *gasp* Racist! Yup. You're black and you steal. That makes you a nigger. So now he's dealing with a couple of stolen credit cards and some cash. Fortunately he has his passport and most of his money. I had read that the north side of the city was dicey, so now that's confirmed. We shall be extremely careful. En garde!
