Hello, I’m finally settled in my Parisian apartment. Except for taking off into a massive thunderstorm in Los Angeles, the flight was smooth as glass. Over the Arctic Circle I raised the window shade and there were the stars glowing three times as brightly as they do over the California desert. After a taxi ride to the apartment, I went out into the neighborhood to buy groceries (and other things with gorgeous French labels). The previous occupants had thoughtfully left a bottle of white wine in the fridge, and so I’ve settled in for a snug evening. Outside my window, there is wonderful street life. Here, even the police car sirens have a special music.
Tomorrow I will have even more to tell you — and iPhone photos of this beautiful city.
Au revoir from the 16th Arrondissement!
