Day 3 Saturday 9 April

Today we went to Provins, a 12th century city accessible by bus from the Marriott. We got to see a wonderful show of eagles, falcons, and other birds of prey. They swooped right over my hat, brushed it, and hit Larry slightly on the head.

Day 2 Friday 8 April

Arrive at Marriott's Val de Europe. This is our condo for the week. After a nap we went to the Val d'Europe Shopping Center. This is a picture of our condo.
