    no doubt.

    The main museum in Athens was out of commission when I first went there as well, getting these upgrades. The bloody shame in Brazil is that a lot of people seem to be saying that government corruption and abuse of money prevented these types of improvements.

        Gas tanks and documents in Arabic were found in an unmarked car next to Notre Dame cathedral, sparking fresh terror fears and at least four arrests, according to French reports.

                        I Was there yesterday. Just missed the last tour so we were going to this morning.

                        We left probably an hour before it started.

                        Incredibly tragic. Literally 100s of news crews from all over the world there. Saw CBC setting up.

                          Wow! I feel sorry for you. So close and yet so far. There should be a massive response to rebuild, however.

                          What else is on your itinerary? We are going to Normandy at the beginning of May. Anyone on strike?

                          I admit to a few tears over this cultural tragedy.

                                When we were walking around the island today, at one spot a group of young people started to sing a hymn (that I couldn't understand) and a few others in the crowd started to sing along. Very moving and brought a tear to my eyes.
