Last Night in Europe

The big ol' Eurotrip is coming to a close tomorrow. Here's my roundup. We have:

1. Partied with the Spaniards, been snubbed by the French and roamed the downtown streets with the English.
2. Eaten the best ham in Spain carved straight off the leg, drank hot cocoa like melted chocolate bars in Paris and eaten Cornish pasties in London.
3. Taken the Metros in Madrid and Paris and the Tube here in London. D.C.'s is the best hands down.
4. Posed with Beefeaters at the Tower of London, had a standard bearer give us a good morning during the changing of the guard, seen a fight in Madrid and almost got hockspit on in Paris
5. Fallen asleep at the drop of a dime almost everywhere
6. Walked, ran, climbed and gone up so many stairs that we cringe at the sight of them now
7. Been stung by a wasp (me), injured an ankle on a cobblestone (Chris), taken a chunk out of a finger (me again)
8. Figured out that Madrid is our favorite city and we miss our Spanish friends very much
9. That all of those famous places and sights you see on TV and in pictures are just as impressive for real.
10. Had a wonderful time...

This has been one of the most incredible experiences in my life.

Thanks for sharing all your stories, I have enjoyed every one. It's hard to come back to reality, but you have lots of great memories and inspiration for more art! Jen

I'm glad you had a wonderful time! I wish I could've gone with you, but you kept me up on your trip so I don't feel so bad. lol
