Untours Cafe

Tourists can be very rude. That includes me. The other day we were at the Louvre. I was doing my photography thing. I spotted a set of stairs that I could use to get a better view point above the crowd. A lady sitting next to the stairs said "non!" along with some other French words. Embarrassed, I scooted away. Eleanor said "You should apologize. The lady has a big frown on her face." So I went back to the lady and said "Désolé Madame." The frown turned into a smile as she nodded. So if you inadvertently upset someone during your travels, apologize. In France the word is "Désolé" (Day-so-lay). It means "Sorry." It is a powerful word. It can turn a frown into a smile.
