This is the courtyard of my work building. As I walked by one day last week, I saw two kitties roaming around. As you can imagine, this gave me quite a frisson! I ran out to ask/tell the primarily French-speaking receptionist about this, and we ended up in a confused conversation, culminating in me writing down "Les Chats" on a piece of paper only to find out she didn't share my verve. But still, I think she was happy I was happy. We got off to a weird start, but now we're buddies. She is learning English and I am always looking to practice my French, so we get on well with our broken languages.
news. Maybe I will catch him crying in the courtyard or something? You will be the first to know.
And here are some windows for you....
Georges Larnicol. (There are better pictures at the link. Amazing stuff.) Apparently, the guy is also known for building a chocolate boat. I don't think I could trust myself to stay afloat on such a boat.... fatty likes her chocolate! That boat would be in my mouth!
One of the biggest things I love about working in Paris (and the fact that my work is centrally located) is the inspiration I can attain over, say, lunch. All of the following were taken last Friday when I decided to go the other way down Rue Barbette and stumbled upon all sorts of new things.
