2 Flat Stanleys from Southern Germany visit us in Paris

Lorenz and Marc from the Realschule in Friedrichshafen-Ailingen, Southern Germany sent their Flat Stanleys to visit Alexandre here in Paris.

Sunday, April 10th we took them to the Musée en Herbe to see the Keith Haring exhibit and do a kids' workshop afterwards.

Here they are heading up to the exhibit with Alexandre and Paul...
