both sad and happy

It is sunny here in Paris and bloody cold (huzzah!). My former home has given me all of the best of Paris weather. And yes the trip was a success in oh so many ways. On every former trip to Paris I have always been propositioned several times. With this BIG birthday around the corner I wanted to test it one more time. Success! Not one, but two - well one was a proposition, the other a pick up - Jon Phillip and Thomas. Full details to come once I return to the land of sun, camels, hannouts, djellabas, and Allah.

Like the old traveler I am, I packed one of those fold um' up luggage bags in my carry on. It is now unfolded and filled with the results of my shopping! And I haven't even made it to the book shop yet! That is on the agenda this afternoon.

Oh yes it has been a glorious trip. I visited all my old memories, found that Paris is much more crowded than when I lived here, or even my last visit, but St. Germain is just the same - posh, pricey stores of every ilk, sleek women, rich men, little dogs and elegant restaurants. sigh

I'm off to soak up as much of Paris as I can before I leave tonight. Ciao lovely readers.

Well, as Rick said to Ilsa, "We'll always have Paris."
Bon voyage pour votre retour.

I'm so jealous -- you were in Paris and you got propositioned twice! Glad you had a good time.

Yes, I'm jealous too - I never get a chance to proposition you!

Oh rilly! All right, but go to the Chanel counter first, and check out the new handbags!
Thank you for coming by.

Someone has to do it eh? I'm pleased to oblige.

Oh Ian, sigh.. You are soooo romantic. Damn, all the good ones are taken. I would assume that would be why - they are the good ones. I hate it when logic works against me.
Thank you for coming by.

Yep, yep, yep! It was my test. I've still got it! I'm not sure what it is, but apparently it isn't gone yet.

That's a brilliant idea. I used to use it for my luggage when the airlines went berserk.
