  INQUIRING MINDS WANT TO KNOW, WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO PARIS. THE DO'S AND DON'TS OF HOW TO BLEND IN.  I spent today starting to pack for our return to Paris in April. Although I also have a wardrobe there, I do bring back a few things to add to my wardrobe.  Then I thought, maybe I should share some ideas for my readers on what to bring to Paris, so they can blend in and not look like a stereotypical tourist, which makes you a target for so many things.  - Go with 3-basic colors: Black, Gray, Navy blue, Brown, Beige or white as your base color - Accessories with colors ..read more

Complaints -- "Plaintes"

Michelin starred restaurants -- What say you.
Paris Missives... - "The reluctant Francophile..."

Having a Michelin star does not guarantee good food. Some of the most cringe worthy experiences I've had were at Michelin starred restaurants. And, the question I ask, How the f*ck did they get a michelin star(s) Bottom-line, garnering a michelin star should be about food, bad sadly as in anything else, it boils down to "food" politics.
