Checking in: Paris
Well, we've left the Roman ruins behind us, at least for now. This afternoon we flew up from Marseilles to Paris & tucked ourselves into a friend-of-a-friend's cavernous pied-à-terre behind the Pompidou Center. Seamless except for an absurd and costly directional error in the cab from Orly, as much my fault as the driver's but he insisted on eating the whole thing. Still on the subject of eating the whole thing, we ended the day at a comforting Sephardic deli in the Marais: if you fancy eggplant dip, this is for you More anon.
