My Little Paris Apartment

Hello, I'm finally settled in my Parisian apartment. Except for taking off into a massive thunderstorm in Los Angeles, the flight was smooth as glass. Over the Arctic Circle I raised the window shade and there were the stars glowing three times as brightly as they do over the California desert. After a taxi ride to the apartment, I went out into the neighborhood to buy groceries (and other things with gorgeous French labels). The previous occupants had thoughtfully left a bottle of white wine in the fridge, and so I've settled in for a snug evening. Outside my window, there is wonderful street life. Here, even the police car sirens have a special music.

Tomorrow I will have even more to tell you -- and iPhone photos of this beautiful city.

Au revoir from the 16th Arrondissement!

I've only been to Paris on Google Earth. haha. My mom went when she was a teenager and she got to describe it to me, too, though. (:
I'd love to go there in person.
But google earth helps my fix. XD

Watch your bags for the pickpockets!! ;D

I've been following your beautiful blog for a long time now! I live in Antwerp (Belgium). That's a 4 hour drive from Paris. It's weird and cool that you are so close now! I hope you enjoy every moment in Paris! It's an ancient city with a lot of soul! If you ever need some European help or a trip to Antwerp, don't hesitate to contact me. I would be more than happy to show you around.
