Vacation In the Luberon Region of Provence

As I mentioned in last week’s blog posts, I was on vacation. Vincent and I were invited by a couple that we know from Paris, he’s American, she’s French, to their house in the Luberon region of Provence.   We took the TGV from Gare de Lyon to Aix Provence, a three-hour train ride, and traveled with another couple who are mutual friends with the couple in the Luberon. I have only been to Provence once before about ten years ago to Egalieres, near Saint Remy, so this was a new part of Prove...

French passengers sue Costa Cruises over virus ship ordeal

Around 850 French passengers who were onboard a coronavirus-riddled cruise ship that was turned away from numerous ports in March have filed a collective suit in Paris with 180 complaints, including manslaughter, against Costa Cruises, their lawyer said Sunday.

In the absence of stopo...

Paris Photos

More photos around rue de Buci (in July). Coffee at Paul, known for their bread. Across the street from Paul. Note the guy in the window. Quite a few tourists too. Doesn’t this look inviting? Inside a quiet passageway. I went into St Germain des Pres to look at the freshly painted interior. Gorgeous. A look to the side.

A little over four years ago, discriminatory and arbitrarily confusing travel bans descended on the U.S., tearing refugee families apart and leaving thousands in diplomatic limbo. This seemed nightmarish enough at the time. But it took a viral pandemic to bring travel bans and restrictions down on the entire world, more or less, with countries appearing on bulletins that vaguely look like lists of enemies on governing bodies’ websites, including the CDC's. Likewise, almost all 27 countries that...

Mulch and the garden path

On Thursday, our next door neighbor had contractors in to remove two very tall pine trees that grew very close to her house. She's been planning to do this for a few years. In fact, we thought she had changed her mind because nothing happened after she told us about it. I think her contractor flaked out on her and because she lives in Paris, making alternate arrangements can be difficult.  The pile of mulch in front of the garden shed. Earlier this week, a landscaper came through the ham...

Mark Zuckerberg just became the third person on Earth worth over $100 billion. Here's how the Facebook CEO makes and spends his fortune.

Mark Zuckerberg's fortune surpassed $100 billion after Facebook launched its TikTok competitor in the US. That makes the tech titan only the third current centi-billionaire on Earth. In June, advertisers including Verizon, Honda, and Ben & Jerry's boycotted Facebook over the social network's lack of hate-speech moderation. The boycott briefly sunk both Facebook's share price and CEO Mark Zuckerberg's net worth. Zuckerberg drives an affordable car and wears basic clothes, but appears to splur...

Best of Eye Prefer Paris: Everything’s Coming Up Roses in Paris

If it seems I am posting beaucoup garden photos lately it’s because I can’t get enough of Paris in the springtime.

Don't blame fate for Beirut's cruel tragedy

When the skies over Beirut exploded on Tuesday, sending shockwaves felt all the way to Cyprus, 150 miles away in the Mediterranean, and devastating much of a city that was once known as the Paris of the Middle East, it seemed one of those times.
