All is revealed ! our true reason for visiting Paris (does one need a reason?) My uncle David Brotherton had a big birthday this month so his daughter Lydia and I cooked up this surprise. She taking him and her mum and sister to Paris. Me and my parents travelling separately and surprise ! at Jim Haynes famous dinner on Sunday. Sorry the photos are a bit dark… we had a wonderful time. Meeting lovely people from the US and the Netherlands over dinner. There was a birthday cake for David and a wee bit of time for reminiscence. David meeting Jim in a Spanish class in the 1950’s in Edinburgh Uni and going on to help out with the setting up and running of the Traverse Theatre. I persuaded everyone to meet up for a coffee at Shakespeare & Co’s new cafe the next day before the Brothertons caught their plane.
