Eye Prefer Paris Book of the Month, March 2021: Loving Modigliani : The Afterlife of Jeanne Hébuterne

I am happy to announce Loving Modigliani: The Afterlife of Jeanne Hébuterne b y Linda Lappin as my book selection this month.   Amedeo Modigliani, embittered and unrecognized genius, dies of meningitis on a cold January day in Montparnasse in 1920. Jeanne Hébuterne, his young wife and muse, follows 48 hours later, falling backwards through a window. Now a ghost, Jeanne drifts about the studio she shared with Modigliani—for she was not only his favorite model, but also an artist whose wor...

Marais Architectural Details

I’ve stayed close to home in recent weeks and rediscovered the architectural wonders of the Marais. I recently had to do a slide show and lecture about the Marais for an organization, so I took new photos of familiar buildings, casting my eye again but in a refreshed way. In case you didn’t know, a large swath of the Marais has former palaces and mansions that were built in the late 1500s to almost 1700. These gorgeous buildings, called hotels, are made of limestone and have ornate details su...

Trip to Nimes

In the beginning of October, I took a last minute trip to Nimes because another trip I was supposed to go on was cancelled. The train fare was only 40€ round trip and the ride was an easy three-hour voyage from the Gare de Lyon station, which is two metro stops from my apartment.   Nimes was a significant city of the Roman Empire dating back from 28 B.C. with a population of close to 55,000 people. A major number of  structures from the Roman reign in France are still standing including an...

Jacqueline Ngo MPII and Little Africa

Jacqueline Ngo MPII is on a mission which I greatly admire.   Her company, Little Africa, is dedicated to all things African in Paris. In the last five years Jacqueline has tirelessly been promoting the rich culture of the African community in Paris. She has accomplished this in numerous ways, first by creating a Little Africa tour, which is called La Goutte D’or in the 18th arrondissement just below Montmartre, and she shares the vivacious, colorful, neighborhood, that very few tourists ...

Chateau Clarisse Wine

When I stayed at Villa Clarisse in Ile de Ré in September, I received a complimentary bottle of Chateau Clarisse wine. I brought it home with me and shared it with Vincent. We both really liked the taste of it and longed for more.   Last month I received an email from Chateau Clarisse announcing that James Suckling, a major wine critic and wine connoisseur, had reviewed a few vintages of Chateau Clarisse and gave them high marks, rating them from 90 to 94 out of a hundred.   The revie...

A Holiday Proposal

It’s holiday gift time, and what could be better than the gift of Paris. Most people were denied the joy of visiting Paris this year with the travel restrictions, so what better way to remind you or people on your gift list of the city than a great photo.  It’s been a challenging year to say the least for everyone I know. Personally, it’s been challenging because I’ve seen my tour business, from which I make most of my income from, dwindle to practically zero since March. A good thing to c...

What is a Virtual Address? (and how does it work?)

If you spend long periods of time away from “home”, whether that’s in an RV, on road trips or living abroad, you know the frustrations of receiving physical mail. Perhaps you’ve heard of a virtual mailing address but you’re not sure exactly how it works. Well…you’ve come to the right place. Over the past 10+ years that I’ve been living outside my passport country (USA), most of the time my physical “home address” has been my parents’ house. You’ve probably done the same, right? It...

Underrated towns in Midwest

Perhaps , you’ve visited Chicago. Or Detroit, Indianapolis, or Milwaukee. These cities may give you the impression that you’ve seen all there is that’s worth visiting in the Midwest. But until you’ve taken the time to get to know its small towns, you don’t really know the Midwest. Once you do, you’ll see it’s more than major metropolitan areas. The Midwest is also more than corn fields, cow tipping, and cheese-laden buffets. Historic downtowns, quirky traditions, and unspoiled nature contribute...

Why the $5.80 Item I Just Ordered on Amazon is a National Problem

Has the USPS created a pricing disaster that destroys smaller US retailers while subsidizing Amazon and Chinese competitors? I just now ordered a $5.80 radio antenna from Amazon.  It is arriving in two days, with free second day shipping, courtesy of my Prime membership.  If I’d ordered another $29.20 worth of stuff, it could have been delivered today, also completely free. We should all be delighted at the convenience and the value of Amazon’s service.  I certainly am, and I buy things on Amaz...
