More to come, but had a great trip back to France and a first real visit to Paris, complete with wandering and getting lost, good food and memories, and great friendships made.
January 2018 NOTES: Alex and I had an amazing time with Les Chaussois, including with my host brother Quentin in Paris. We also got to explore Paris and Mont St. Michel on our own, making memorable friendships, getting to know the city on our own terms, and more. I don’t think I’ll have a chance to return soon unfortunately, but I finally understood why so many love Paris and why France first stole my heart nearly 10 years ago when I was struggling with a new language, making new friends, falling in love, and discovering new ways to see the world and make the most of life. As I take a break from distracting digital technologies between Xmas (Dec 25th) and Chinese New Year (Feb 16th), I have and will use the time to keep in touch. Friendships matter.
