Thanks much to UHP for emailing!
It is just wonderful that the French will be able to see the props on a train. Although I am able to visit the exhibit in Chicago, I still find the idea of viewing them on “The Hogwarts Express” quite a wonderful thing.
Darn, I want to see the props too! But it’s pretty clear that they’re not gonna come anywhere near me, thanks to the Baltic Sea. :( I’m quite surprised, though, that the UK isn’t getting any of it.. I mean, the Jo’s British, Harry’s British, the whole goddamn wizarding world is British. What’s up with that? Why isn’t the UK getting the Harry Potter Exhibition, or even a few train compartments filled with props? Or have I missed something? (Can you tell I’m desperate for an excuse to fly over to London, LOL)
I have never been more happy to be French !
(Although living in Paris HAS prevented me from doing amazing things like seeing WRock shows, listening to live PCs
I did it once, from 1 to 3 AM, I was kinda tired the next day and going to LeakyCon, so…)
