      VT meeting just for info

      Paris Yesterday

      This is to try to end what was promise to many . I like to give you the chance to come to my beautiful cities and see things usually not seen by the casual visitor.
      I will be taking you along or with the help of a curator or historian locally. the places will be in consecutive days,but order not chosen yet.
      Paris, underground tour Eiffel, the view of the Chapelle Expiatoire, a boat ride into the countryside;etc.
      Versailles, a look at the underground pumps that feed the gardens of the palace museum, the other Versailles (its more than the palace!), the parks inside the domaine de Versailles even going back the Grand Canal with goodies going back to 1741.
      Fontainebleau, going into rooms not accessable by general public ,even those I do meetings there of historical value, and a guided tour of the city.
      I like to see the interest on it and will try post in forums of these cities too. Eventually will break up the signup into each city to determine number of participants.
      I will come up with ideas to you for lodging, eating, and transportation. So here is your chance again. And thanks to those who have kept mentioning to me here.
