...from a week in Paris, visiting with our son who is studying at Université Paris VIII for the semester. We had a lovely time: catching up with our son, talking politics and art and books with him and his host, seeing favorite sights from before, discovering new ones. And oh, my, the food. I will likely go into shock when the next credit card bill arrives--Paris is an expensive city--but I am so glad we could indulge ourselves.

Welcome back!

The closest I've come to Paris was reading Laura Florand's book, The Chocolate Thief, which is a fun romance-y kind of book set in Paris--and that isn't very close at all, maybe, but it was obvious to me that Florand loves the city. Reading that book made me want to visit like nothing else has. I'm glad you had a good time!

Your black-squirrel icon reminds me of the very many black squirrels we have in our neighborhood. I'd never seen one before moving here, and they still delight me.

Thank you! I'm glad to be back.

I love visiting Paris. I couldn't live there--I'm not a city person--but for a couple weeks, it's delightful, even in late November. I'm also glad we rented an apartment instead of a hotel room. That way we could buy fresh bread from the corner market, make coffee ourselves, and have a more relaxing breakfast.
