oh Paris

oh Paris

oh Paris, after a smooth air canada flight Paris has engulfed me.

Antoine a French friend from Humboldt State is hosting me. Today we

stopped by the Institut du Monde Arabe (Institute of the Arab World).

This evening Antoine and his girlfriend Cécile made a delectable

dinner, reminding me of all those French tastes that I have missed

since my year in Montpellier. It has been a great pleasure spending

time with them both. Antoine is a graduate in Computer Science and

Cécile is working to become an English professor.

Tomorrow the canal st. martin is on taps. This is where Amélie liked

to go to skip stones on the water (ricochets).

I must mention at least one of the folks that I talked with on the

plane. Sami from Lebanon and the Québécois steward, both had great

stories to share. Sami about doing business with Chinese furniture

factories and life lessons and le Québécois Steward about his life of

2 days in Paris 4 days in Montreal per week.

à très bientôt,
