Dear Parler Paris Reader,
The rain wasn’t letting up all day, so we wondered who would show on such a miserable day, and the 13th, too. They sauntered in slowly, one by one, old-timers, newcomers. Famous historian and author THIRZA VALLOIS (“Around and About Paris” Volumes I, II and III and “Romantic Paris”) came in her favorite burgundy velvet hat and porting a suitcase full of her books (as always). She chats with regular, Jane Rosenstein who usually has some interesting man with her…but not this time.
I was very pleased that ALAN and KATI LEWIS came to say hello. They had been participants at our first Working and Living in France Conference in 2002. They now have an apartment near the Eiffel Tower and come to Paris to eat, enjoy cultural events and visit with friends. Their dream: live and work in France. Newcomer ALEX GESHOS, an Aussie who once lived here and in Brussels, is now in Sydney, but wants to spend more time here. He’s looking for a pied-à-terre in the south or Paris. DANIELE DUPUIS has become a regular and we’re always happy to have her French point of view.
ERIC TOLBERT had graced our doorstep once before — he and his partner, John Lutz, live in Paris and are currently looking for a French “fat farm and detox center” after holidays with a stream of U.S. visitors which began Labor Day and ended January 9th! He asks, “Is the party over?” EVA LEE LICHTENBERG, our author of “Au Petit Marguery” (yesterday’s Parler Paris) and the forthcoming regular column, “Crème de la Crème,” and mediator/attorney from Tranquility, New Jersey, chats with the group. AVIVA CASHMIRA and her MOTHER were invited by RICHARD LOGIUDICE. He’s currently working as a consultant for the Cultural Heritage Division of UNESCO and has been to Après Midi many times before. Aviva, is a translator and author of city guides.
The party didn’t break up till about 5:45 p.m. — an indication that the group had lots to share among new friends. The next Parler Paris Après Midi will be February 10, 2004, 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. at La Pierre du Marais. For more information and to see the photos from yesterday’s meeting, click on /parlerparis/apresmidi.html.
See you then!
A la prochaine…
P.S. Friday Jocelyn Carnegie, our Property Sales Manager, and I will be at the Vive la France French Property Exhibition in London gathering up information and contacts that we’ll be talking about next week.
