Hello there! We’ve finally escaped the Mediterranean heat and are cooling off in Paris. A little too much, perhaps; yesterday brought the first rain we’ve been exposed to in a couple of months, putting a damper on the day. Ah well, we had three decent days before that, and a couple more ahead of us. Can I just say: WE LOVE PARIS. Weather and language barrier aside (and maybe the prices), I could definitely live here. It reminds us of London, but with better food, and just generally all-around more awesome.
