Au Revoir...


So tomorrow I am off to the fine french cities of Paris and Lyon for 8 days! The weekend in Paris is a little mini-vacation for me, and the week in Lyon is to attend Transducers 2007, a major conference in my field. I'm still hoping I'll be able to blog while in Europe, but the frequency will probably be somewhat less!

For all those of you racing this weekend, in Bakersfield or elsewhere, best of luck, ride hard, ride fast, and keep the rubber side down!

Back from my little foray off the bike in about a week...hopefully full of stories to tell about adventures in another land.

Au Revoir... (I don't know more than two words of french...ack!)

Have a good trip Dr.

Just speak English. They know what you are saying.

that's how i usually get by...I do, however, feel badly about it. I wish I did a better job of learning languages, but let's just say I am *not* gifted in that department!

You must be young, if you do not remember the French from the song line that starts: "Voulez vous ...".

Have a good trip, and do not fret about the language. If you have spare time, the Musee d'Orsay is one of my favorite places in Paris.
