Paris to Angers

Alyx and I will depart Paris today for Angers, the city where she’ll be studying for the next year. It’s pronounced  Ahn-jay, not Anger-s how I’d been for too long. I looked it up and it turns out we’ll be leaving from the same station as appears in this photo. The train will be departing through the other side of the station, as no trains are allowed to depart from the front window since the failed  experiment in 1895.

les Touristes

Of course Paris is incredible. Alyx and I made our way to 848 year old Notre Dame cathedral, toured the inside and had a picnic in the courtyard. A man hand fed sparrows pieces of baguette as the place bustled with tourists. Our meandering took us to Place Saint-Michel and across the Pont des Arts bridge.

It wasn’t until I got home that I noticed these women behind me. I was trying to capture the spirit of the statue of Saint Michel with my scissors loft and midriff exposed. They look impressed to me, no?

Nous Arrivés!

A few photos from the first day, enjoying the cafe lifestyle of Paris. It’s not hard to get used to. Here are a few more photos.

Last Day in NYC

I just had to squeeze this last Bannack in NYC post in before starting with  the European ones.

I miss you, little guy!

A Tally of Two Cities

As of now Alyx and I should have landed in Paris and will be making our way across the city to our first stop, a great looking, shared apartment in the 19th arrondissement of Paris.

Paris VS. New York

A friendly visual match between two cities told by a lover of Paris wandering through NewYork. Details, clichés, contradictions: This way, please.
