MEETING OF NOVEMBER 9TH, 2004
(Photos do not necessarily match descriptions.)
Regular visitor to Après Midi Sandy Zayas took pictures of me taking pictures. She wants to sublet her 10-meter townhouse Ile Saint-Louis apartment for a couple of months this winter to some lucky taker -- it's the largest 10 meters you've ever seen!
Gorgeous girls Yolanda Robins and Patricia
Laplante Collins looked like sisters in their white shirts
and big white smiles. Yolanda is a past conference attendee who moved
to Paris about on year ago and is now working with Parler Paris
and French Property
Insider as a Property
Consultant. Patricia hosts both Paris Soirées and
Paris Network each week -- a great way to meet new people and
learn something new from her fascinating speakers. For more information,
email Patricia at firstname.lastname@example.org
Marion Reuter who calls herself a Black Forest girl just started a company called "Fit for Paris" whose goal it is to help Expat wives integrate better in Paris. Dolores Lilley who just arrived that day from Ottawa is a regular at Après Midi and will be settling into her Paris "pad" until mid April, taking part in the Paris Writers Workshop.
Cute couple Caroline Phan and Barney White out-smiled the rest of us. Caroline has been in Paris one year as an assistant teacher at a French lycée but wants more permanent work so she can stay -- no wonder she is campaigning for internship with Parler Paris. Big smile, big personality -- tough to resist. Wonder what Barney will do if she stays?
Heinz and Marlene Feldman are almost retired. They come to Paris twice a year and are thinking of buying an apartment to call home. Old buddy Geraldine Kaylor, a freelance writer from Ann Arbor, Michigan, regaled us with some of her hilarious stories as you can see by old buddy from New Orleans Dale Gaber's huge smile. Geraldine is here with her mathematician husband for three months, as they often do, thanks to his academic work. Dale is an psychotherapist settling in Paris and seeking clients.
Jane Rosenstein always has a friend with her. She just returned from traveling in Eastern Europe with her mother. This time she brought Jacqueline de Maillard who came to Paris with her husband and doesn't do all that she wants to do here.
Eugene Finley is a filmmaker who lives in the 4th and has a house in the Var (Provence) he wants to sell so that he can buy more property in Paris. Irishwoman Wendy Arnould is living here on an international project because of her skills in business, culture and language. Macey Smith is winding down her three month visit and is seeking a way to move to France.Long time regular Anna Escomel is housesitting for the moment, soon to be on her way to the UK, but still trying to find a way to stay in Paris. Patricia Mitchell will be traveling in Umbria, Italy the next two months to help a friend with her vacation villa property and then will head to Crete in January -- tough life. And Deborah Sommers was back (not pictured) -- she's an "Exterior Designer" or landscape architect specializing in urban spaces, balconies, terraces, courtyards.
