    Beth, had no idea you were in Europe–sounds as if you're having a ball,cooking class and all (btw,the walt disney castle,if i'm not mistaken,is the old Tyn Church)
    Caryl and I are going back to Budapest in mid June and then taking riverboat up danube and rhine to amsterdam … a 2 week trip,followed by a week in Paris over the july 4ht holiday – any restaurant or other Paris tips.
    Enjoy the balance of your trip and tell me about it on your return

    George, wonderful to hear from you. Yes, the Tyn church it is, Walt Disney castle it is not. Sounds like you have a fantastic trip planned. I have lots of recommendations about Paris, though you probably know more about it all than I do. Let's talk when I get back.
    Btw I've just been invited to speak about my book on our ancient relative at Drexel University in Philadelphia.
    Love to you and Caryl,
