En Vacances

Bike storage at Les Frigos, an art collective in Paris

I've been silent for the past two weeks because I've been on family vacation in France.  In college, I spent a semester in Grenoble, but there are still many areas of the country that I haven't seen, and we took a car trip around the Loire Valley and Bordeaux, finishing with the requisite stop in Paris.  Jimmy and I went there starving, as we lack decent affordable restaurants in Stockholm.  As you can imagine, I was too occupied stuffing my face and expanding my waistline to take any decent photos, but here are a few snapshots I captured along the way.  Can't wait for my next trip back.  Now it's time to get back to work, more consistent blogging, and my regular all-carb diet of instant noodles and pasta. 
The requisite cup of hot chocolate at Angelina's in Paris. I'm proud to say that I finished the entire pot.

Oo, lucky you! Now you've got me hankering for a visit to Paris... I hope I can squeeze a day or two in this summer. Hey that reminds me, don't forget to let me know when you plan to be in NY. I have a big bag of yarn put aside for you that I think you'll find amusing! XXX Suzanne
