Here's to six months of blogging...
The sight of these Chinese puppets planted on the golden spikes of the fence adjacent to the Jardin du Palais Royale is in many ways synonymous with six months of blogging about Paris - it has been far more surprising, engaging and gratifying than I could have ever imagined.
Since it's still the wee small hours of the morning and my jet-lagged brain isn't functioning, I'm taking the day off. I'll be blogging from the Boston area for the next couple of weeks and have lots of interesting ideas for posts, including one about the upcoming celebrity chef lecture by Grant Achatz (Alinea) at Harvard.
In the meantime, I'm going to try to go back to sleep. After the sweltering heat in Paris yesterday afternoon, the sounds of rain splattering on the pavement outside of my window is the perfect lullaby.
