Being on an organized tour is not something Mike and I do often. The next day we had a bus tour of Paris. Here are some of the highlights:
|Fountain by the Tuileries garden and the Arc de Triumph|
|The Army Museum with the tomb of Napoleon|
|Our tour poster|
We had some free time, so Mike and I took our bikes out for a spin. Here are some of the highlights:
We sang our first concert at La Madeleine in Paris. It was a beautiful concert and I was thrilled that it was PACKED with Parisians who wanted to hear us.
My best friend from college Jerelyn and her son Jack were going to be in Europe during our tour, so they arranged to meet us and hang out together in Paris. It was so much fun!

Mike got the Norovirus when we arrived in Strasbourg, so he was sequestered to our hotel room for 48 hours. Because we didn't want to risk infecting the bus of choir members, we opted to take a high speed train to Munich. That was fun!
