Postcard from Paris

Sunday, November 11, 2012

I arrived in Paris on a beautiful Saturday morning in the 18th arrondissement.
I found my way haphazardly to my girlfriend Julia's flat using broken French and my smile!
I opened the gate to paradise...
and documented myself in the mirror to make sure this was all real.
I rode the metro from Chateau Rouge to Palais Royal to find my Paris daydream.
I found it!

I took my goodies to the Pompidou...
and sat soaking up the sunshine.
I ate the most delicious ham and swiss quiche!
Then devoured it...
I watched the Alexander Calder spinning above me...
and eventually wandered to my single most favorite art piece in Paris.
I strolled to the Tuileries Garden...
and remembered all the things I ever loved about Paris.
I watched the French being French...
and pictured myself riding a golden horse through the streets of Paris.
I found my stride when landing on Rue Saint-Honore...
and saw inspiration in every shop window!
including this one...

I stumbled upon this view...



and finally found the source of my macaron obsession. 



Here I saw life through pastel colored glasses.



Tea for one please!



I said goodbye to my friends at Laduree...



and discovered spoons falling from the sky.



I found the missing obelisk from my trip to Luxor, Egypt this past April.



Then stopped for drinks with a real Frenchie at Hotel Costes



The next morning the train awaited but I left my heart in Paris!
