Bonjour...just back from Paris and got it together to blog...well, Aimée decided to really. Paris in late September and sunny October is jumping...Jours de Patrimoine with historical buildings open to the public. I visited Bertrand Delanoes office, the mayor, and wouldn't mind his corner view of the Seine.Then on Saturday it was blanche nuits the white night, everything opened all night and free breakfast for all at the Hotel de Ville...we went to St Germain de Pres swimming pool with a dj, light show and everyone in the pool. Fashion, yes I found a ten euro pair of suede ankle straps in an old theatre with bins of shoes in the Goutte d'Or in the 18th arrondissement. Did lots of research for the next book and a reading at WHSmith on rue de Rivoli...right around the corner from where Coco Chanel opened her first boutique on rue Cambon...
