We visited three castles today!  One was designed by you-know-who, Leonardo.  The whole estate is the same size as the entire city of Paris!  It had 365 fireplaces!  The second castle is where Leonardo stayed towards the end of his life.  It is also where he is buried.  The last castle is built in the middle of a river.  It was very cool to see castles with my own eyes instead of in movies or books.

In Paris you have to pay to use the bathroom in a lot of places.  It costs about $1.00.  When you gotta go, you gotta go...I paid the $1.00. They even have bathrooms on sidewalks for people to use.  

Guess what else?!  When we were riding on the Metro, there was a man who had a CD player that was playing  "When the Saints Go Marching In" out loud for everyone to hear!  I felt like I was at home in Louisiana.  We also had a few people ask us about Hurricane Katrina.  It was interesting to know that people in different countries wonder about Louisiana in that way.
