When one of my friends told the group she'd got a flat in Paris, we all naturally invited ourselves to stay. Danielle & Richard gamely hosted us for a weekend, touring the museums: Musée d'Orsay (an old railway station) and the Louvre, although we didn't go in, so I've not seen the Mona Lisa yet!
The day after returning from Paris (or thereabouts!) I started a four week round-the-world tour. I've not got all the photos online (yet!), but the itinerary included Hong Kong, San Francisco, New Zealand and Sydney.
In San Francisco I paid my first ever visit to the castro (the irony of that is not lost on me!) , where I spent a couple of days checking out the cafes and bookstores. As always in San Francisco, I stopped for a look at the Golden Gate Bridge.
Here's a token airplane photo - this one has my Dad at the controls (well probably not during launch - it was his first time in a glider) .
Just for once, a business trip co-incided with something I was happy to do as well - Gay Pride week in Atlanta. I spent the days in meetings, and the evenings sampling the atmosphere at the free festival that ran much of the week. Over the weekend was the pride parade itself - a really great sight was the giant Rainbow Flag , lead out by the Stars & Stripes (which are everywhere in America, post 9/11).
In August it was time for London's own pride parade, and a party in Hackney Marshes to follow (great idea...). Here's london's flag: , and here is the bus from OUTInTheUK , which is a website I use a lot. One of the photos of me elsewhere on this site was taken at the same time.
