I long for Christmas in Paris. Paris is glorious at this time of the year, each arrondissement trying to outdo the other. It's not just the lights, the energy, the shopping which is beyond compare. It's also the food. They've (the powers that be in california, I'm not naming anyone) outlawed foie gras, those savages. now what am I going to EAT!?
I'm serioulsy homesick.
