Paris I am sorry!!!!! I apologize for complaining about your sucky weather. I had no idea what I was talking about. Because right now, where I live, it's 110 degrees and I can't even fathom getting out of the house after 9 am.
The heat has taken what was left of my work ethic away. I reason that it's back to school tomorrow so why beat myself up for loafing for a few more days of official summer break. I stayed cool these last few days by watching synchronized swimming. Did you watch it too? Tell me, is it completely ridiculous, or genius? And the outfits and little hats they wear.. and the thick makeup, and the perfect unison, and the little pinchers on the nose, and the gaping mouths? How very strange and awesome.
Another way to cool off is to go through my Paris pictures. I took these pictures on my last trip. My friend Flavia was showing me parts of the city I did not know very well (some pretty louche ones, flavia :)
Fighting our umbrellas and the blustery rain we stumbled upon the Antoine et Lili home shop. (turn down the volume before ckinking or you'll jump out of your seat)
uh ho... color on quay de valmy... how to resist?
Flavia and I wanted everything, but we settled on a few Rice melamine cups.
That's just a random stairwell. How inviting, somehow...
Here are my rice melamine cups at home. Awesome (methink) on top of my red-polka dot oilcloth bought at the marché Saint Pierre:
Okay, returning to all important task at hand:
Off we go:
