I was in France last month and I was trying to blog my trip until we visited Omaha Beach and Cemetery.  This place was just overwhelming, to see so many american soldiers that were buried there knowing that they lost there lives to stop the tyranny that was happening in Europe so they could be free.  If you ever get a chance to visit this beautiful place where you can hear the ocean and smell the pine in the air you really should go.  The only question I have now is what has happen to our foreign policy that every one seems to be against America?  Has the time come that we take care of ourselves only?  Close our borders and not let people in?  If the people who are here don't like America go to another country or back to your own country no one is stopping you.

No more hurting people; peace

People watching in Paris.

Paris is an interesting city to people watch. Yesterday we counted the number of over weight people we saw and we counted nine, with 7 of them at Starbucks. Non-Caucasian they really impressed me.  Dressed very nicely no thug dressing that I saw.  Art students dressed normally, not haveing coloured hair that screams' look at me im an artist'.  Back to the comment on overweight, I wonder if it comes from the fact that most walk or ride a bike.  Maybe the fact they buy fresh meals from the market.  I bought my som some english cucumber s and I had some oranges,   which were great.

National institute for the deaf in Paris.

Today we visited tne national institute for the Deaf.  It was a very interesting place.  One room we went into appeared to be the library and it was really small.   I think it could have been the library for the history of the school since its beginning go back to 1760.  The gym area had basketball and rock climbing walls.  Below the gym was a small soccer area.  We are currently on a train to the chateau de Versailles.

Hello from Paris,

Its been a couple of days since we have been here and I thought I should be blogging this.  Paris has this extensive subway system and we travel by train or walked everywhere.   My feet are killing me. Great place for taking pictures, but I am not to sure about shooting street in Paris.
