On to paris....

So we hopped the bus at 8:30 this morning..departed the pancras train station at 10:25... We got there early enough to get some lunch for later and to change our lefty pounds into euros...and we still almost didnt make the train..or so davey thought...we were frantically trying to get though customs,etc, had totally lost our group..of course it was all my fault...☺️...but we made the train with plenty of time to spare!!!!...And it was really very painless..we went through several tunnels..always thinking..."is this the chunnel???"... We'd been served a continental breakfast..after loading up on our usual hotel breakfast in london...a very dry roll...didnt eat it...and some yogurt muesli..didnt eat it..coffee..already had enough...and a croissant...started with a pinch off the side...just a taste...ended up eating the whole damn thing!!!...so i ended up eating the lunch i bought at about three paris time...thank heavens we choose the late dinner time...so whilst we went thru the chunnel, davey managed to go to the loo..get some bloodies..and missed the whole thing...then on to paris..traveling at upwards of 180 mph...the first photo is self-explanatory...the second...not so much...this is one of the first sites we saw on the bus from the train station to our hotel...it's called "tent city" and its rather a slum..these pople live here..along the rails..in tents the city afforded them..one of the most depressing sites you could imagine..i snapped a photo and this fellow kept flipping off our bus..over and over..i imagine he's used to being caught on camera...possibly could be good incentive to get OUT of that hell hole!!..we, on the other hand, are safely ensconced in the intercontinental hotel...the place even smells wonderful..possibly all the fresh orchids in the lobby..we took a tour of the city earlier and are having a drink  in our room...but there's a very strange noise happening when we turn on the water...and it's taking forever to get hot..... Stay tuned....
