of Scotland: We rented a car in London,
and we drove to Scotland saying, "Line on
the right, line on the right."
The town looks like a fairy tale.
Castle: This is the castle where St.
Margaret of Scotland lived when she was queen.
Her king was Duncan; he was murdered by his
cousin Macbeth. Years later, Duncan and
Margaret's son killed Macbeth in a battle.
This street musician was outside the Church of
Scotland in Edinburgh.
on May Day: While the communists shouted
through bullhorns in the park on May Day, we
listened to some musicians play jazz in front of a restaurant.

Paris. This one was outside the Hotel de Saville.
The Hotel de Saville may be a hotel, but it is

some candles too.

for sale next to the Seine: Across the
road that ran next to the Seine River, there were
all sorts of shops including many pet stores.
They sold dogs, cats, goats, chickens, ducks, and
even chipmunks. All of the animal stores had
cages outside their shops so we walked right by
beggar in Paris: A beggar in Paris: The
beggars would sit barefoot on the ground and bend
their heads low so their faces couldn't be seen.
Gypsy bass player: We met him one night
while we were waiting underground for a subway.
His bass had only three strings; he said that's
the way Gypsy basses are. He got on the subway
and played music for money.
with a dead duck: In Paris, butcher
shops sold animals with their heads and feet
police car: The police in Paris were
rude. They would not smile for photos, and one
threatened an arrest for trying to take his
