We took a tour of the Notre Dame Cathedral and visited its famous gargoyles overlooking the city below. I don’t think they could have imagined hundreds of years ago when they built the church the events that would have unfolded at its feet in November 2015.

It’s been over a week since my last post and since the terrible attack on Paris – a city my wife and I love so dearly. Watching the events as they unfolded on the TV was tough because we had just visited the city back in April. I can’t imagine what those unable to escape the terror felt in those last minutes. It’s unbelievable that in a city like Paris this could happen and with that what does it mean for all of us? Must we stop traveling the world and sit in our homes waiting for evil to be eradicated? We can’t in good conscience do that – we need to travel and experience the joy and beauty of other cultures or else they’ll succeed in making us all as close minded as they are. We won’t let that happen to us and thus we’ve just booked our next big vacation for next April where we will be off to South Africa and Zambia for two and a half weeks. Should be a good time!
