Hi Charlotte,

We are home again after a wonderful time in Paris.  We love the city and actually felt very safe.  Parisians were out on the streets, in cafes, in stores and generally seemed to be going about their lives.  The terror attacks were still the topic of conversation, however.  I am glad we all had the opportunity to visit the city – no lines at any attractions or museums!  We walked right up to the Eiffel Tower ticket window and purchased tickets to the top.  That’s never happened before!!  No lines at any museums either.  We did take the bus rather than the metro in an abundance of caution.

I have been telling clients and friends that they should not be afraid to travel to France, especially in light of what just happened in California yesterday.
