Meanwhile...back in Paris...

Bob has apparently NOT been missing us.  He had Thursday and Friday off from school and during the last 3 days he's had SO much fun that he spent the entire day on Sunday (today) sleeping.  He's been out with his friends and has had friend sleeping over.

On Friday, Bob went with his physics class to a town near Geneva, Switzerland to a laboratory called CERN.  At CERN, is the world's largest particle physics lab.  This includes the largest Hadron collider which is 100 meters underground.  His class was given a private tour and Bob was blown away by the technology and the size of the lab.




The picture below depicts the track of the underground Hadron collider which is a ring that is 27 kilometers long!
