1st Day in Toulouse

I have arrived in lovely Toulouse! Beautiful architecture, canal du midi, Garrone river and lots of students here in the old town.

The first pictures were in the taxi and then pulling up to the hotel. Capitole square is just outside the door and my 3rd floor window. It's the first time I have really seen a square in France. Right now it feels more like Italy and their many squares.

The flight over was great. I almost didn't make the connection from Florida/Atlanta to the Atlanta/Paris. Everyone was on the plane and their were just three people left getting on. And guess what flight they were on? Yep, you guessed it...mine! Florida was slooooww with everything today. Somebody get those people some coffee!

It is 1:05pm right now here and the jet lag is starting to hit me since it's just 6 or 7 o'clock at home and I haven't slept a wink. Too excited! Oh my, the Air France airline food is sooo good! I kept my menu but don't feel like digging it out right now...catch it later.

I shall give the tour of my room also, bidet in the bathroom and all.

Thanks to the DH for the new camera and Sav's quick lesson! Hopefully they will get better as I go along.

                                                                Lively square that I will check out better tomorrow.

                                                                  Pulling up to the Crowne

                                                                  Where I will be residing with my ear plugs
                                                                                         very, very soon.
                                                              Le Bidet
                                        Got to love the amenities!

Bonsoir, mes amies! A-bien-tot! (That should be, "Goodnight my friends! See you soon!)

Am so glad all went well with the trip over , nothing like running through an airport to make a flight loaded down with bags. Ha, that 's not exactly how to say it. Anyway, the pictures are great. We are doing just great, too. All is well after just a bit of emotions at first. Sounds like , after you get some rest, you are going to have a wonderful time. We will look forward to seeing and hearing more. Love you so much, Mom, Dad and Sav.
