Top 10 Moments From the Last Two Days :-)

1.Having two Parisian restaurant owners fight over us - (La Crêperie won!)

2.Meeting a kind, old French man who was a singer and told us "I love Americans because they died for me in Normandy - I remember!"

3.Being almost trampled by large packs of touring German kids that seem to be overtaking the city this week

4.Performing under the shadow of the La Basilique du Sacré-Coeur de Montmartre (we never lack inspiration here!)

5.Receiving a 10 euro and 5 euro bill from our loving audience near the Artist's Square at Place du Tertre in Montmartre!!

6.Accompanying a wandering Canadian singer who heard us performing "Mona Lisa" and joined in :-)

7.Collaborating with a fellow street musician, a violinist, who wanted to play with us after hearing us from the street over

8.Ending each day with a peaceful time in Notre Dame Cathedral or Sacré-Coeur, taking in the awe-inspiring beauty of those sanctuaries and saying a prayer of thanks

9.Eating at least 2 nutella crêpes a day - those count as meals, right??

10.Being two Bohemian musicians in Paris, laughing and enjoying life here together - how amazing to be in this beautiful and inspiring place!!
