Katja, Me, Alex and baby Felix

I got to spend some time with some very dear friends of my who lived in San Diego in the late 80s/early 90s. We had lost contact over the years and the last time I saw both of them was about 10 years ago in San Diego (just by sheer chance) when they were visiting for the day.... It was soooo wonderful to see them both again and to meet Katja's little one- toooo cute!

Claudie and Sophie Catherine

Claudia and I have been dear friends for about 20 years or so from La Jolla. We met at the Pannikin coffee house one fine day and have been good friends since. Sophie Catherine is Claudia's very cute daugther! I can't believe how much she's grown since I was hear last April with Mira! She's only 6 years old but she's as tall as an 8 year old! And soooo cute!
**Take note of the picture in the top left corner-- These eggs intrigued me- they were rusty brown and the shells were very thick.

Leaving Munich for Salzburg!

Hi Everyone!

Just a quick HALLO and TSCHUS from Munchen-- I'm on my way to Salzburg this afternoon for a week to see very dear friends from my past- two of them who I haven't seen in over 15 years! Imagine that!!! Not sure about my internet connection for the next week... but I'll try to post stuff on my travel blog and FB....
I won't have time to read blogs or respond to comments but please feel free to leave them... and I'll respond when I get back to France in two weeks!

It's been a FANTASTIC week here in Munich... I hooked up with a former coworker from Madison High (Carolyn) who is a body paint artist and who happened to be in Austria for a festival last week- and she just hopped over to Munich when I arrived and we got to 'hang out' together for a few days... It was a BLAST!!!! It was nice to share the time and experiences with a good friend. I accompanied her to a gig she had just happened upon 'by hazard' at Nektar Beach restaurant and we had SUCH a great time meeting new people and making new friends. I have the pics up on FB and hopefully, I'll get them up this afternoon...

I'm behind a few days on my blogging so check back! I haven't edited any pics on FB but I'm taking the time to do so for my blog and also to make collages for the blog!

All in all, it's been a REALLLLLY wonderful experience back in Munich- where I was 20 years ago for a few days at Christmas time.

Take care,

Disneyland Paris

Disneyland, the HAPPIEST place in Paris!

From our last trip to D-land last month!

Thunder Mountain... Very fun and fasttttttttttttttttt!

A nice banner indicating where the ride is- since we WERE wondering!

Oddly enough, this came at the VERY END of the ride, NOT at the VERY BEGINNING!

This was VERY funny to me... Okay, so sitting quietly is allowed BUT--- NOOOO DANCIN'!!!

Lunch at D-land (Thanks Andrea and Ferbent!) Fajitas, chips and guac... Not so bad for fast food!

Two really cute kids!

This little girl was just DARLING, in her little pink outfit, blowing a kiss at her daddy as he snapped a pic! She looks like a Southern Belle- She was German or Russian, or something... I forget!

The ABSOLUTE HIGHLIGHT of my Disney adventure! Meeting and talking to Merwan Rim (for the second time)!

How cute...

The teacups were fun and BOY! did we SPIN!

It's a SMALL SMALL WORLD (after all).

When Paris MEETS Hollywood = Leesa!

And a few of my favourite places-

Whoops! NO dancin' (again)!
Hurry up, will ya? I'm LATE!!!

Hurry up, will ya? I'm LATE!

Me and my hot pink car on Autotopia!

Good bye Disneyland!

Looking out at the Seine on a bright, clear HOT day - train ride home through Paris from D-land!
