Dear Parler Paris Reader,
Dinner at Tujague’s was a particular treat — all five courses of Creole delight while everyone was getting to know each other. My niece, Allison Gorlin, who is an accomplished New Orleans pastry chef, artist, photographer (you see her photos of Paris from time to time) and ukulele player, serenaded us with a few local tunes, including “When the Saints Go Marchin’ In” and “Jambalaya”(“On the Bayou”).
Sunday a few of us took the Grayline Bus Tour of Katrina devastation. In my opinion, every American, if not every person, should take the tour and see it for themselves. The bus rides close to the home where I grew up on “Fleur de Lis Drive” one block from the 17th Street levee that broke flooding all of Lakeview. I had walked through it a few days earlier to my horror and shock. On the tour, when we passed the “West End,” where the seafood restaurants we frequented ever since I was a child and saw they were totally gone, nothing left but their pilings, I broke down in tears.
In the afternoon, my daughter, Erica and I visited the Erzulies Authentic Voudou shop at 807 Royal Street, owned by Anna Parmelee, one of the Round Table participants. The scents from the oils and soaps are overpowering and addictive the moment you enter. Anna hopes to bring her voudou business to France…and I agree!…We could certainly use a few Love Spells, Voodoo Spells, Ancient Egyptian Love Spells, Voodoo Magic, Witchcraft Love Spells and Psychic Readings from Nouvelle Orléans to help find solutions to our personal situations!

Before you arrive in France, please ensure that you collect the necessary documentation. This will be required for your mortgage application and/or to open a bank account in France. We advise our clients to contact recommended lenders in advance to discuss getting “Lender Pre-Approval.” This means you will be able to make a clean, unconditional offer should you need to act rapidly. An unconditional offer is much more attractive to a seller and increases your negotiating power…FPI Subscribers Read On…
