Here I come! Leaving today from Bradley International - flying to Montreal - then non-stop to Paris! Arriving at Charles D. Airport at 8:30 tomorrow morning...Saturday, Sept 1, 2012. This will be my journal. I'm staying in an apartment in the Marais neighborhood with my friend Carole from Chicago. My little red suitcase is bulging with 5 pairs of shoes, 6 tops, 4 pants including jeans, all comfortable. The weather is suppose to be in the 70's with no rain. How lucky can I get? I expect to visit the largest flea market Vanves on Sunday morning. Pere La Chaise Cemetery, Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Decorative Arts at the Louvre, drink lots of coffee at outdoor cafes, draw something, eat a baguette, have a little wine. And walk through every flea market I can find looking for antique buttons, linens, ribbons, trims, you know, girly things. Now all I have to do is polish up my French (not!)
