The crazy bus driver skipped our bus stop because of the traffic and dumped us out somewhere we had no idea where we were. So, in all our wisdom we decided to take the subway and find our way back to Montparnasse where we were staying.
One of our days in France we went to Provence and toured the Medieval villages of the area. The Medieval part of history spans approximately 700 years starting about 800. So I have seen one more thing to add to my knowledge of the 1100s, 1200s, 1300s, 1400s, and 1500s. The beautiful villages of the Provence area of France. Keeping the history of these times straight is hard but you can see from my pictures how different everything was. Some of these pictures I am just in the side of as I wanted to be sure you could see what I could see. Be sure to scroll across the picture, the words that pop up, will tell you about where I was and what I was doing.
We are still having computer problems, even tho back in the States last night nothing is working. We met another FLAT in Paris and have his picture. That was fun. I was mailed home from Paris so watch for me….We will add the France posts as soon as we can. Apparently we need a visit to the apple store genius bar.
There is an update on the Palazzo Vecchio post on March 29th the picture is now attached. It is a picture of the brick and rib ceiling considered a monument to architecture. It was constructed in the 13th century. Very amazing when you think about the tools available to the builders of that time period. There were no cranes to lift bricks in place, wooden structures had to be built around everything stone while the masons put the bricks in place. Astonishing, when you think about it.
The uneventful part of our trip, cheerios, van ride, check in, showing off at Frontier desk, and all buckled up.
When the ticket agent taped me to the Frontier sign several people came by and said, “Where, is Flat Stanley going?” I told them my name was Flat Mason and I was going to Europe to see the art. I was very popular.
