Better Late Than Never

Work has been kicking my ass so I haven't had the energy to post for a while. An update on the job shortly but in the meantime I wanted to share some photos that I took from the Champ de Mars on Bastille Day here in Paris.

Le Champs Elysees

Last weekend Amy and I went out dancing near the Champs Elysees. When we were finished dancing our butts off around 5AM we decided to head towards to the Champs Elysees to look for a taxi. To our surprise the street was completely closed off to traffic and for the one day during the year we had the greatest boulevard in Paris almost completely to ourselves. As usual click on the images to enlarge.

A Love Letter (Of Sorts) to Paris

Dear Paris,

I didn't want to leave you this morning and obviously you didn't want me to leave either or else you wouldn't have let someone aggressively assault a train conductre on the RER A line as I was trying to make my way to the airport. Paris, like a bratty child, you challenge me like a distant lover you try to push me away. I'm not having any of it, my love for you runs deep and there is almost nothing you can do to push me away forever.
