Greetings from Paris!

My last visit to France was October of 1986 – I was six months pregnant with Taylor and, thus, passed on the wine. Which is possibly why he (and Daniel – another nine wine-less months) are so darned smart and most definitely why I’ve been trying to get back there for the last 25 years!

A very young CE at the Pompidou Center, October, 1986

Me (and Taylor, kind of) in Paris, October 1986.

We arrived a few hours ago and we’ve just moved into our hotel room. And we are armed with a wonderful list of must-see, must-do and must-eat options thanks to 0ur Paris connection, Marie-Christine. But first, we need to sleep, as there was none of that to be had on the ten-hour flight. As of now, I think we’ve been awake 24 hours straight.

With any luck (and wi-fi along the way) I will be posting during the trip…

    Have fun! That fountain that Steven’s sitting in front of is still there! And was made by my mom’s cousin! Small world. I can’t wait to see all your pictures and hear all your stories. Eat a croissant for me please.

    C’est si bon!

    Shall we temporarily change the blog name to Pouletplayer?

    Love the photos. Can’t wait for more. And Katherine comes through again! M, your assignment is to come up with a post that Katherine cannot find a clever chicken-related pun to write. 😉

    Bon Joir! Yes, the sculptures in the fountain that Steven is posing near were made by my cousin Niki de Saint Phalle. We posed there too, as did Alexandra. Carry on Pouletplayer (said wiz a phony french accent)!

    Just catching up with the chicken blog. I admit I mostly skipped the Dante post. You’re in Paris! Don’t love it so much that you forget to come home!
