The trip went fine. Missed my connection in Paris---grumble, annoying---but otherwise things have been great. It's cloudy here, and chilly, but there are lots of dogs and little children bundled up in a lot of clothing. FN and I went shopping yesterday. We didn't buy much, but did lots of browsing. I am totally digging the flat tall boots everyone wears here. Amazing. (It's hard to wear heels on the stone sidewalks.) I all kinds of want these boots; they are exactly what I was looking for in Toronto but could not find.
