On our way to the Musée du quai Branly, not a cloud in the sky!
I know! The lyrics aren’t exactly the way Cole Porter wrote them, but back in March when I first started this post it was sizzling here in Paris. The weather went from cold in February to hot in March and it felt more like summer than springtime! Things are back to normal in April and Patrick and I decided we wanted to take advantage of Paris this year. Last year we were so busy the year went by before we knew it!
Hélène’s theater troupe, La Compagnie du Passage.
Afterall, Paris offers so much….theaters, concerts, restaurants, museums - I mean the list goes on and on and we’ve been trying to do our share! We saw Hélène’s performance at a small theater and Claire’s concert at a supper club where we dined and danced! It was in this tiny underground club in Montmartre listening to the Klez Band that I ran into an old friend, Paul, who I hadn’t seen for over twenty years!!! He lived in the apartment below me in the Cour Saint-Pierre. There were a few others (Eric and Jennifer) there that night as well. Jennifer was just a baby when she first arrived in the Cour Saint-Pierre!

We’ve been to a few nice restaurants that I’m hoping to find the time to write about and we went to see the film The Artist. I loved that film and we were rooting for them during the Oscars! (So glad they won!) We saw another good French film, Intouchables, that I recommend as well.
Maya Muses: What I really need is another 12 hours added to each day to do everything that I want to do (like write more posts on my blog) and I’ll be fine!
They say as we get older time passes more quickly. Strange phenomenon, but so true! April in Paris - lovely, but Uncle Sam making us file our taxes (yes, we still have to even though we reside in France) doesn’t help! Have to run!
