Why . . . .those are the very qualities I so enjoy about ball point pens.
Nevertheless, I would still like to travel the EU; so please count me in.

it sounds like my mother.

Born in France she came to the US in 1946 to work at the embassy.

Now she's 90 and could live here or in France... but now she's more
comfortable HERE than in France.

in her mind France is like it was in 1946...

sounds like my wife talking about me in Paris...

she says I'm "in my element"

I speak french (poorly) and I understand how things are done.

Paris no longer amazes me... I enjoy it, but I've seen the big sites
more than a few times... though I'll still go to Le Louvre or the Eiffel
Tower... Le Louvre has the masterpieces AND the changing exhibits... and
as an engineer the Eiffel Tower is amazing.

but the last time in Paris I let my wife go through Notre Dame by
herself while I watched the sunset and rested my feet...

I prefer the Cathedral at St. Denis and would rather spend a day at the
March� aux Puces at Clignancourt anyway.

It is relatively little known to American visitors. But it has some visible
history since the Kings and Queens of France were buried there. And
it has a number of stone crypts with the carved images of those buried
on it.

The contents of these were emptied during the revolution and tossed into
the garden. Later, collected together they were put into the under
groundcrypt, the bones could not be separated.
