Good Night, Paris!

Karen on the computer... Gary sleeping!

Tomorrow is a big travel day.

We have a 7AM train from Paris to London via "le tunnel sous la Manche" also known as "The Chunnel". It's a 31.5 mile rail tunnel under the English Channel which connects the UK with France.

I'm up worrying about being under the English Channel and researching everything I can find out about it on Wikipedia, (... it's the longest undersea tunnel in the world and the second-longest rail tunnel in the world. The American Society of Civil Engineers has declared the tunnel to be one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World ) while my worry-free Gary just sleeps away!

After the Eurotrain to London via the Channel Tunnel, we'll make our way to Heathrow and catch our flight back to Seattle. From there we'll drive home to Portland.

Paris, London, Seattle and Portland... all in one day! WOW! :)
