Thank you, Michelin, for organizing your huge meeting in Paris this year so that I could wrangle a trip and tag along. I visited my favorite city in the world for maybe the 27th time. I walked and walked and walked (and ate) and walked. We got to see some wonderful friends, and a fantastic brother! And I got to spend some time in a foreign country where I am not on constant display and can communicate.
Tim always makes fun of me for taking the same pictures in Paris, over and over. I love the way the Eiffel Tower looks from underneath. I love how pastries look in their box. I love the Pont Alexandre III in the afternoon light and its view of the Tower. I love the architecture and the dogs and the women in their fashionable clothes. Paris, take me away!
