Does hate wash hate

They were once the dirty, lazy, deceased, demonic, dumb undesirables. 
The Irish, Italians, Germans, the Asians, and others, all those were once the dirty races. So why is it so difficult to understand how most Latinos, Latinas, turn their backs on the immigration fight? Remember when the Cubans were the dirtiest and most unwanted? It does not matter how anyone came, those looking to give back the hate they or theirs once were given are giving it back to others. Most of the dreamers parents came to the US on work visas, or brought to work the fields, the factories, the kitchens, raise the children of the haters, and when the work was done instead of paying them their employers called la migra. 
I did not come like that and that is why I don't hate.

Arrival in Paris

The flight was great, and it was exciting to be finally in Paris.
John called for the shuttle, and we waited over 40 minutes but that was not the worse of it.  I was disappointed to see graffiti on the highway and traffic was bumper to bumper. It took over four hours to get to our hotel because of traffic and three other couples that the driver had to drop off first because they were on the way.
The hotel, I will never book a hotel in Paris that says quaint hotel *** and a three-star quaint is an old building and one star in the US. Henceforth I will book with known hotels chains but I wanted to get the feel of real Paris.
The good thing about the long ride is that as we got closer to our destination we got to see a lot of the beauty in Paris. Here are some photos of our arrival in Paris.

Quotes for thought

Three quotes I got today on email: 

"The key is not to prioritize what is on the schedule, but to schedule your priorities." -- Stephen Covey, Author and Speaker

"If money is your hope for independence you will never have it. The only real security that a man will have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability." -- Henry Ford, Founder of the Ford Motor Company

"I pray for the willingness to let go of my arrogant self-criticism,
and to praise God by humbly accepting and caring for myself" 
- Daily Reflections, p. 324

Our flight to Paris

A few photos of our trip to Paris on Tahiti Air. Had never heard of Tahiti Air before and was leery about the great business class deal I found. The service  included full dinner and breakfast, along with a lot of perks and toiletries, and the seats recline almost into a bed for a comfortable sleep. An excellent flight and very smooth. I sure learned how to book with miles and will share that with those that ask.

Santiago De Compostela, photos of the university

When we visited Santiago De Compostela, the university was closed, so we were not able to go into the building. The university is on top of a hill overlooking the beautiful and historic town of Santiago De Compostela.
