We have a full kitchen, which means our first stop was the store. We were all longing to eat a meal at "home." Brendan cooked us pasta and homemade tomato sauce with mushrooms, fennel, garlic, and onion:
This is my first time. Bren was here 15 years ago; 2 years ago, Tony lived here for 6 months to learn French. I find this city to be so vibrant and beautiful. I like that it is smaller than NYC. The part I've seen so far is very clean, and the architecture is just stunning. I could stay a long while...wine and champagne are very cheap here, daylight lasts from the early hours of the morning until 10pm (over 16 hours). The weather is so nice too! Lows in the 50s and highs in the 70s. Tony said to expect rain but forecast is all sunny, and hopefully we'll get lucky! Tomorrow is an all day music festival that the city shuts down to celebrate. Everyone seems excited...we saw a parade of roller bladers dancing in the streets.
I do miss Lola and Zoe, but my parents assure me they are fine. Still, I miss snuggling them! Anyway, time for some rest here!
