I see France...

Jump to last reply

Two glorious weeks in Paris! I arrived Sunday and went to Georges’ (my
landlord) to pick up the keys to my apartment. Three rooms and a full
bathroom. I love Paris apartments; the entrance to the building is
never in the same building as the apartment.

Monday: Last year’s BEST boulangerie has been replaced by a BETTER
boulangerie (according to Georges). After my croissant and coffee, I
went to the Viaduc des Artistes and walked the full length of the
gardens - roses still blooming! Then I walked back along the street to
visit some of the shops (word to the wise: some shops are closed on
Monday). N’O was open, which is a wonderful shop with dried flowers and
seed pods, many from places with exotic names, and handmade papers.
Found some wonderful scrapbooks and little journals for me and for
gifts. OK, I cheated and went to Mickey D’s for a Big Mac and fries; I
ordered in French, but the 16 year old girl (about a size 2) answered me
in English. I’ve discovered that many French want to practice their
English, and have decided to go for it, even if it isn’t perfect.

Tuesday: This was shopping day on Blvd Haussmann; decided to try that
l’Occitane lavender water for linens. Spritz on before ironing the
bedsheets (oh yeah like that’ll happen; I’ll just spritz as they come
out of the dryer). Made supper at home and watched the movie “The Rock”
dubbed in French; Sean Connery speaks French with a Scottish accent.
Tres weird.
