Le Ciel est bleu à Paris!


Live update from Paris!
We landed Wednesday morning and hit the ground running despite the fact that Mary and I didn't sleep the entire flight even though we were upgraded to Business! After lunch with Peter, Genie and daughter Holly, we wandered around the 1eme.  Peter and I wound up the day with our feet up at the fountain in the Palais Royal gardens.  Yesterday the Sempé exhibit at the Hotel de Ville and lunch at Reminet. Then Peter, Mary and I walked our feet off in the 5eme in search of some shops I had on my list.  Today the Pet Cemetery and lunch with Richard Nahem and Zabie Johnson. We're on our way to Eric Tenin's for a party of bloggers and many of his Paris friends.  A computer/French Google snafu has caused a delay in reporting. I hope to put up another post in a day or two.

Eh bien, someone is having entirely too much fun! I would have loved visiting the Sempé exhibit with you. Hopefully you will have some photos to share. Amuse-toi bien, Virginia! Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Fantastique!!! From what I'be heard, the weather has been warmer than normal. You picked a great time to go.

I have been getting photos emailed to me from Paris from my coworkers who are there. They say now that the boss has left for home I'll start getting many more. It's like my own personal PDP in my mailbox.

BTW - I love the music on your site!

Goodo ... that sky sure does look good. What a social-social whirl is Paris for you!

I know the Paris news is of most excitement, but I have to let out a discreet little Woot! for your business class upgrade, too. ;) Very nice. This gorgeous scene makes my heart glad, V, as does the vision of you and Peter soaking your tootsies in the fountain. Bisous...

Virginia is a busy girl. Sounds like fun. You can sleep when you get back here.

Alexa said...

I just love (and ENVY) everything you have to say here, m'dear! Especially une soirée chez Eric & Co.—a definite highlight of my own last trip to Paris! Glad you're having such a great time.

How utterly delightful! One day, I hope to spend an evening in that excellent company!

Joe said...

So glad the sky is blue for you all.

V, You can never have TOO much fun! Enjoy every minute. Glad you're having such good weather as well.

Julie said...

Virginia, a friend has asked me to recommend a coffee table book on the cafe life of Paris (and France). How it started, how it is cherished and why. Plus plenty of examples. Quick ... off the top of your head ...

To be in Paris with blue skies, good friends and to soak it all up sounds like my idea of fun. Enjoy!

Love the photo -- seeing the architecture makes me feel as though I am there. And that blue sky, lucky you! Glad that you will be able to do some live updates, though I know that you must be completely exhausted when you get back to the apartment. Keep on having fun!
