We got here last eve after a beautiful all day train ride from Toulouse. Our hotel here is very comfortable and charming. This is a holiday here so lots of tourists and most places closed but will be normal again tomorrow. Tommy is so impressed with the Eiffel Tower – is sending seven postcards of it to his friends! I still think Notre Dame is impressive – it is so massive and solid. Jane wants to go shoppings. Steve seeming interested in everything.
Love to you, Dede

We have had a nice time in Paris – good weather, not hot. Kathy, Bill and Jane went to a movie yesterday while Jean and I visited and Dan and Tom went by subway to check on their trip to London. They leave tomorrow early, and we 3 are flying at noon to Madrid for a few days and on to Portugal and the beach. We got a letter yesterday from you forwarded from Lagos also from Tim.
