3 1/2 hours train ride and a world apart…Well, I have switched geographical locations since we last chatted….I now log onto Blogger from Zurich.I am actually amazed at how completely different two cities can be when they are soooo close to each other.I mean, in this day and age, almost four hours of distance is nothing.Yet the personalities of the both cities are totally and utterly different. For example, in Paris there is this vibe of creative energy. There is this “craziness” about the city.In Zurich, there are plenty of galleries and museums but none of them feel fresh and “open”…everything here…

Well, it’s my annual return to my favorite place in the whole entire world…Paris (Paree…see, I did learn something in French.

After our financially educational tour of St. Tropez, I was ready and looking forward to returning to the normal world that is Paris…where expensive food was mandatory and worth every penny.I would much rather prefer to pay 100 Euros for a plate of delicious pasta and a glass of wine in St. Germain then a pizza margarita on the boardwalk in St. Tropez.We arrived via train and checked into our home for the next ten days…the fantastic George Sand Hotel on Rue Mathurins.This hotel was were the majority of our wedding guests stayed (including ourselves), so this was a return…

I’m back in the world of blogging…woo hoo! Can’t you just feel the excitement and exhilaration?? Say yes! At least pretend… Well, I left the comfort of the Miami last Thursday to arrive in Zurich Friday morning to connect to Nice that same day to arrive and catch a bus to St. Tropez….oy vey! The traveling was not the best….I had a lovely business class seat en route to Zurich, and just as I was getting ready to order my first class of champagne, the rest of the people on board my flight got on. It is the only time…
