I like living in Baltimore. Of course, one of the biggest reasons why I like Baltimore is that I get to leave from time to time. Problem is that it seems that I rarely look forward to returning home. I enjoy Paris quite a bit. Give me a year to wander its streets and explore my little neighborhood in the 7th.
The few days that I've been here have not been enough. So much more to explore and experience. Down the street are numerous restaurants, cafes and shops that need a thorough investigation. I've spent more time this trip doing the "tourist thing" like visits to the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, the Royal Opera, Champs Elsyees and general sightseeing.
But I've also taken the time to investigate olive oils, wines, food, baguettes and rotisserie chicken.
More to come but for now, I'm not too excited to depart Paris. Perhaps the warmth of a business class seat will cushion the blow...
