Yesterday we were so privilaged to work with 35+ Portuguése women They were so lovely. Some spoke English but most did not. It was a beatiful how the started off with peopke a little shy but by end the language, culture or geography didn’t matter. we felt so connected as a group of women compssion for what others are going through, yet holding a dpace for one another as we grow and continue to be more connected and peaceful both inside and out.. We wrapped up the evening exchanging emails, taking photos and sharing hugs. It was beautiful. Afterwards our group at at a delicious vegetarian restaurant. Then got settled into our new hotel for the night.
This morning we woke up at 3:45am We caught an early flight to Paris. Once we got here we checked in and replenished our energies with a day of sightseeing. We started the journey with cafe and croissants. (amazingly the first one I have ever loved). The walked along the river, and took in the scenery. We stopped and drank some red wine with cheese and baguettes. It was an experience I will never forget. We saw Notre Dame and many bridges.
Laughed so hard trying to figure out the self washing port-a-potties.
Then for dinner I had french onion soup and crepes filled with nutella. They were both great.
The afternoon rain stopped in time for us to take a night time walk to the Eiffel Tower. it was pretty amazing.
Paris is indeed stunning, rain or shine. Goodnight. Off to S. France in the morning. We will do a harmony circle with those women tomorrow. Feeling filled with gratitude.
