Reconnaissance and La Butte aux Cailles in Paris
Bonjour, Today has been what the French refer to as “meli-melo”, a little of this and a little of that. This morning we did some reconnaissance around the different apartment that we will use for the last two weeks of our visit while company occupies our rue St. Paul spot. It is on a quiet […]
October in Paris and Another New Restaurant!
Bonjour mes amis, Thanks to Anne of Green Gables (via Matt Doss’ Facebook post today) for reminding us that it’s great to live in a world that has Octobers. Paris felt like fall today for the first time as we said hello to the second day of October. It was just a bit cooler, a […]
A Day on the Left Bank in Paris Filled with New Delights

Sights to Savor on a Saturday in Paris
