Mmm... I'd definitely say there was a sense of something impending, 
something big was happening, and that little actions taken then would 
have big repercussions later.  Something I certainly feel a lot less of 
these days.

I'm still working out airfare (!) but it looks like I will be out there 
from the 5th (day of arrival) to the 12th (day of departure) as well.  
Sounds like Saturday (the 11th) is as good a day as any... group trip to 
the D'Orsay?
