~we’ll always have paris~

April 29th, 2007

I discover the real French flea market at Puces de Vanves. I find a lovely Nouveau print of Eve and the serpent by Lucien Levy-Dhurmer, two Victorian theater hats (a velvet beret with moon and stars and a tri-corner with an ostrich plume), a set of antique Tarot cards, and tiny esspresso cups with geishas on them, for Ali.

All my bargaining does not begin to balance the $100 breakfast then had at the Cafe Flore! C’est la vie.

On the way to the airport our cab driver ran out of gas and yes, we missed our flight, but again, c’est la vie…

Now I have a new desktop image on my computer, to remind me of that gorgeous French light.

    What a smashing picture of you and Ali! Oh, and La Seine is nice too.
