London / Paris – 11 June 2009

DH and the kids took a very early train to Paris. I stayed behind in London. I met with an existing client and conducted a training session for a new client.

My day got very exciting after work. First, I had a private tour around Parliament. Then, I went to Beating Retreat and was treated to a most unexpected surprise…..I saw the Queen and Prince Philip. Dave Worsell has pictures so I can prove it! How cool is it that I saw the Queen (from a distance of about 50 yards) today, and I saw President Obama two weeks ago? Who will be next?

And….I walked 10,687 steps today.

What my family did in Paris while I was working in London:
Walked by Hotel de Invalides, went to the Eiffel Tower (lots of beggars and people selling crap) and St. Germain-de-Pres and St. Sulpice (featured in Da Vinci Code). Saw the inside of Notre Dame and found a great sorbet/ice cream place nearby.

Andy missed a great Indian dinner because his dad was unable to wake him.
