Bonjour from Paris!
Salut everyone! I got jealous of Justine's fabulous Florence posts and felt like it was about time for me to write a little Paris update. Despite somewhat crummy weather, the city has been fabulous! The Stanford center is in the 6th arrondisment, right by the Jardin Louxembourg, in the Quartier Montparnasse. Montparnasse is one of the oldest and most famous areas of the city, where artists like Chagall, Picasso and Modigliani came to live and work. Various ex-pats like Hemmingway and Gertrude Stein lived there too. Happily, the school is also surrounded by tons of delicious creperies, so we're all pretty well fed! I get to live in the 15th arrondisment, lucky me, about a 15 minute walk from the Eiffel Tower...pretty idyllic! Missing everyone tons. Bises (kisses)!
