  1. I love this place, Jude. I’m amazed how many places you have visited over the years. When you are well settled in Cornwall and need a break, please come and see us in Norfolk. Are you unpacked by now? 🙂

      • Yes. Mum’s Birthday, (not getting an younger), a family trip on a boat and then the usual May celebrations. We had snow a couple of days ago in Bonn and Fredrikstad, please send us some sun. 🙂

  2. Wow Jude – I lived in Paris for a year and cannot recall ever seeing this in the “flesh” so to speak – didn’t know what I was missing !

    • A year in Paris must have been amazing! I am sure you will have been here. Maybe too busy looking at the Eiffel tower to notice the fountains.

      • I was working in a hospital and studying ( in theory, on practice i went to the odd lecture and spent most of my free time walking through the city – lived in montparnasse – it was a wonderful time!

        • very true – especially when you are a student … Although i did go to hospital every day and my french is pretty good – so overall I did learn a lot – not as much as possible but not bad..
