London and Paris by Loretto on 24 August 2012 7:22pm
We arrived back on Monday night. The weather was so hot in both cities, it rained a bit on Wednesday in London, but it was still warm. Almost 100 degrees in Paris. When we returned to London it was almost as hot.

I will have pictures up later. I did the London Eye and we visited Versailles this time. Interesting place. You can't help but feel two emotions as you walk around the place, beautiful architecture, but beyond the gates people were starving.

Hope you had a good time.

I heard that it was hot in London at that time. I was in Wales so missed it.

Hi Sue,
Yes it was very hot in Paris and very nice in London. I hope you had a nice relaxing vacation in Wales?

Yes, I did, thank you, Loretto. We did have a few sunny days (not hot) but most of the time was rain and wind. Fortunately it was a nice day for my cousin's barbecue on the farm and two of the three days of the County Show were dry.

Glad to hear the weather for the most part was pleasant.

We went to Versailles years ago and walked round the palace gardens. It was lovely.

They are beautiful Ken, but all I could think of was "Let them eat cake!" The impoverished starving outside those big ornate gates and the wealthy living life on the hog inside.

"Occupy Versailles!"

Here are some pictures of our recent trip to London and Paris.
