France Post #1

I know you are waiting on the edge of your seats for stories and pictures from my trip to France. Here is the first of several posts.

I arrived in France on Sunday, Sept. 30. On Monday Mentanna and I went to Aix, France just to walk around and see the city. I handed my camera to Mentanna and she took a series of street and fountain pictures. Here they are in this slideshow. I didn't put any captions on them, because I don't know anything about them. Also, we aren't in any of the pictures. We also ate at a sidewalk cafe where I ate fish tajine which isn't French...but it was yummy!

i would just like to say that if i hadn't absconded with her camera, you wouldn't be seeing any of these beautiful pics from france. natalie has to be the worst tourist on the planet! although we had a great time anyway....

I would just like to say that I handed my camera to Mentanna, because I knew I wouldn't take that many pictures. If there aren't people I know in them I don't usually take them. And I must also say I saw the top 5 things I wanted to see in France.
Mentanna, Scott, Will, Wyatt, and one more that I won't mention here. I saw more than I planned so I left very satisfied with my touristic efforts!

Boy, Houston is ugly! I am so jealous! These pictures are better than the Travel Channel. That's as close to France as I'll come.

Natalie: I'm so glad you posted pictures! I was reading Mentanna's blog and she mentioned a friend coming to visit . . . I assumed it might be you and so I moseyed on over and sure enough - it was you. She of course posted NO pictures. So I was glad to see that you did! Glad you were able to go visit. And I've been to Aix en Provence . . . isn't it beautiful?
