I added details on my time at the Louvre and the Arc de Triomphe to my France Journal tonight. Good times!
I added another day of my travels to the France Journal tonight as well as a whole bunch of pictures. I've barely made a dent in the written journal though. I've also added a bunch of photos to Facebook.
I've added the first batch of entries and photos to my France Trip Journal so check that out if you're interested. I only managed to finish my first day in Paris though. It's really slow going because I saw so much every single day! Also, I've been busier than I thought I would be this weekend. Last night was the Deck Opening Party at work, which was an awesome time. Jason showed up and so did a bunch of other great people and I ended up staying past midnight! Crazy. Tonight was Chris's birthday party, and as you can see it has left me up waaaaaay too late at night. The only reason I'm blogging now is because I wanted to say that I finished the first day of France stuff.
I've added a Trips section to my blog (you can see it in the menu on the right as well). I'm going to fill in the details of my France trip over the next couple days, and once that is done I'll fill in sections for my trips to Köln and to the USA for interviews.
Jet lag is irritating. But I promise to start blogging France trip stuff soon. Well probably not until Thursday, but I'll get there eventually. Really I will.
I'm flying home in just over 12 hours. It's been a great trip but I'll be happy to return to a country where I can depend on the opening hours of stores, where people are happy to make change for a ten and where I sleep in my own bed in my own apartment without looking up every so often to check if my stuff has been stolen yet.
I'm at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival which is in the town of Annecy, France. It is completely AMAZING! The town is nestled in the hills of the French Alps on the shore of a big lake that is clear and calm and just stunning. Plus we (I'm here with Mike) get to see tons of really good animated films from all over the world and meet all sorts of interesting people from the animation industry. It's an amazing experience and I'm definitely going to try to come back in the future.
