When I wrote (and Facebooked) about Mary in August 2012 (click here), I had just told her that I was taking her to Paris. Now here we are six months later, and it's just not going to work.
You see, Mary will be a college senior starting in the Fall of 2013 and taking her out of school to work with me in Paris in the middle of her first semester just won't do. We were both disappointed, but I'm pleased to say that our disappointment was short-lived.
We're going to stay in a modern Oh-Barcelona.com apartment just steps away from the famous La Sagrada Familia (click here!), walk / eat / drink until we fall out, and get turned out at a flamenco show. We're even going to serve the local community in some way. In Mary's words: "I can't wait to experience international jet lag for the first time." Now that's enthusiasm. LOL
Mary and I still have plans to meet up at Avalon Beverly Hills on March 9, 2013 so we can make our way to the Federal Building together for Passport Day in the USA so that I can personally* get Mary her very first passport. She's going to need it. =)
*Mary's passport is being funded by me and is in no way being funded in full or in part by The Passport Party Project.
