Fête de la Musique 2017 Paris! What a blast! What’s better than 1700 bands playing on the streets and a bunch of drunk Parisians?
It’s been 8 months in Paris! Yay & nay, because my immigration procedures are still not over. Anyhow, here’s to another round of 10 impressions of Paris.
City Pharma is the mecca of French drugstore cosmetic haul here in Paris. Crowd is a very serious issue. The whole of Paris is in the store by 11h00 even on a week day.
Here is another round of 10 observations that amuses me.
I love pho! There’s magic in the Vietnamese broth and the wonders of rice noodles. After ‘phorathon’ in 13eme, here’s favourite and my worst.
Starting a new chapter in Paris! Never imagined that I’ll land up here. I grew up in South Africa and spoke no French. Ended up meeting my French spouse while working in Shanghai. My hubby speaks perfect English. Well, it has been deteriorating since we returned to France. So here I am, pondering upon my life while waiting for the internet man to show up. *He still has not shown up. It has been 3 weeks. #$@%!@$#!
Here are my 10 impressions / 1st month highlights.
I have just moved to Paris! No internet at home yet. Living in the dark ages, my friends. Currently using ‘borrowed wifi’.
Will reply to your comments asap. Fellow bloggers, I will catch up on your blogs ???? I have scheduled posts for every Friday up to the end of the month.
The UK travel posts are in draft mode. Slowly catching up on those. Keep writing, writing…
Apologies that I have not posted on My Little Box September 2016 (UK) or the Graze box (UK). These will be posted once I have internet connection.
I did not get Japan Funbox for Sept, was unable to sort out my address before the deadline. I have subscribed for October delivery.
This concludes my update ????
Bateaux Parisiens was a restaurant / cruise that operates on the Seine. With the iconic Paris as its back drop, the beautifully arrange French cuisine was just orgasmic. We did the lunch cruise 12:45 service premier (front of the boat, next to the window). 2 hours of pure Parisian romance.
With generous helping of champagne, wine, cake, starter, main, cheese, dessert, and more wine. I had major food coma. We were really lucky that there was hardly any body on the cruise on that day. I think there was only 6 tables? So we had plenty of good service and attention from the waitrons.
