leaving Europe

Can hardly believe it but I am about to go to CDG airport here in Paris and will be leaving Europe today. After initial homesickness, five months has whizzed by.
Spent the last couple of days seeing new and old places in Paris. Outdoor museum of sculpture by the Seine was an interesting new. Last night went to an audiovisual display at Notre Dame. Then went to Gregorian Mass there this morning. Last sound as I left was all the bells pealing in the square.
Now I am heading to the airport and will be in Singapore tomorrow, half way around the world!

    Indeed the time has passed quickly, I have enjoyed everyday reading of Kiwi's wanderings as if I too were there.

  2. Thanks alex. Glad you have enjoyed hearing of my trip. I am in Singapore now, having just skipped six timezones! Felt like I never slept on the plane, but actually I must have slept quite soundly for several hours as suddenly there were only two hours left to fly.
