Where is Waldo?

I've stitched enough to show off a bit of progress.  I'm calling this "August" though it does not have a name on the chart.   The chart is "A Prairie Year II" by the Prairie Schooler.
 
Just when you think you know where I am and what I am doing...

I might surprise you.  Mom and I took the Eurostar to Paris this afternoon.  The train left at 4:22pm.  I thought the Chunnel Experience might make me catastrophic, but...I slept through that part.

We arrived at Gare d' Nord about 8:00pm.  We bought metro tickets and made our way to our apartment.  Even at 8:30pm the streets were bustling and full of people.

This is the view from our apartment window.

Very Parisian yes?

Oui! =) Be sure to buy some ice cream there...especially if you are near to Notre Dame. It's some of the best ice cream I've had!

Huh. I don't read blogs for a few days, come back and find you in a different country. I do envy the folks in Europe the transportation systems that make that so easy. Enjoy Paris. The WIP is very cute.
