Parc de Sceaux

Last Sunday we went to a beautiful, big park called Parc de Sceaux. The town of Sceaux is where the park is, so that is what the Sceaux part of the name comes from. We had a picnic there, like many others. Eve was there and her Japanese students were there too and Charles, a person who works with my Dad and also works at école polythechnique, was also there. Parc de Sceaux has many, many, many cherry trees.

I'm on spring break for two weeks now. Have you heard of the recent volcano eruption in Eyjafjallajökull, Iceland? Well the problem is that the ash from the volcano is in France and all over Europe, so that means our flight to Sweden on Wednesday the 21st is probably canceled. If it is, we'll be going by train instead on Thursday (Paris Gare du Nord, Köln, Germany, Hamburg, Germany, Copenhagen, Denmark, and finally Helsingborg, Sweden). We'll be leaving by 5 o' clock in the morning and we will be arriving in Sweden at at least 10 o' clock in the evening! But, if our Flight is not canceled, it is just good.        

 Cherry trees!
