Paris for a day
Over the past year my train leaving for work left on the same platform (wrong side ;-) as the train leaving for Paris. Day in day out I have been looking at the crowds through my compartment window. I saw businessmen in fancy suits, backpackers, friends on a day out and children going on a school trip, hopping on the train. Such happy and fortunate people! If only I could join them.
This week something was different. I was on the right side of the platform .... among them. It felt simply great! When I told one of my colleagues how much I had been longing to step on the train to Paris, she decided to join me. We had a great day. Leaving at seven in the morning, see the sun coming up over the Seine and the Place de la Concorde.
Dear Chantal, thank you once again for the information you gave me about Paris. It was very useful!
Wish you all a great weekend!
Lieve groet, Madelief
