At the end of April, we flew to England and spent a couple of days with my father in Hooton Levitt (near Sheffield). I enjoyed visiting my mum's best friend Joy and her daughter Gill. Whilst I was catching up with them, Steve played golf with my father. It was only his second round since he started taking lessons in February. He had a good time despite the length of the English rough. He was particularly proud of getting a par on one hole.
We next went to London to visit my schoolfriend Anna and then took the train through the Channel Tunnel to Paris. It had been about 15 years since my last visit to Paris. Nothing had really changed except that everything seemed much cleaner and safer than before. It was Steve's first visit, so we visited all the sites including the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe and Versailles. I particularly enjoyed eating french bread and camembert and onion soup and omelettes. I can't wait to go back again.
