It’s All Maya!

If Life is an illusion, then why do I keep banging my head against the wall?

Si la Vie est une illusion, pourquoi je n'arrête pas de me taper la tête sur les murs?

Aguas Calientes, A Stepping-Stone To Machu Picchu

November 27th, 2016 · By Lynn

Getting off the train, our first look at Aguas Calientes. The Statue of Inka with the symbolic condor and puma. After a few days in Ollantaytambo, Patrick and I headed to Aguas Calientes. I had read that A.C. was a town that was under-whelming and overpriced. A place you had to be if you wanted […]

May 31st, 2014 · By Lynn

The best kind of flowers are those that are bought for no reason except that they’re pretty! Patrick and I had so many outings in May, I thought I would have time to write about each one, but it wasn’t to be.  It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words, well I’m glad […]

January 1st, 2014 · By Lynn

First French Thanksgiving!

November 29th, 2013 · By Lynn

I’ve mentioned before that Thanksgiving was always the one day I would get nostalgic for home.  Over 40 years later, it’s still a day that makes me wish I was spending it with my family.  This year I did the next best thing.  I decided to celebrate Thanksgiving with my little Parisian family.  Friends I’ve […]

Happy New Year 2013!!!

January 4th, 2013 · By Lynn

2012 went out beautifully and 2013 came in just as lovely. Patrick and I declined invitations to ring in the new year among friends. Instead we opted to stay home and have a quiet dinner just the two of us. To work up an appetite, we walked around le Bon Marché and admired the windows […]

Christmastime Once Again!

This is the first Christmas Patrick and I will spend in our apartment since returning to Paris.  In 2009 we packed up all our things and shipped them back to France, so that year we spent Christmas at my mom’s house in Pittsburgh.  Wonderful memories with Katarina, mom, and the rest of the family playing […]
