Sunny Sunday

On Sundays, and especially if there is sun, Paris is full of inhabitants getting out to enjoy as much of the day as they can before the 6 PM curfew-which by the way is said in French, couvre-feu, which I’m interpreting without any actual evidence whatsoever, to mean cover the fire, maybe turn out the lights. I started out my excursion at the mairie, or town hall, where they had this delightful light fixture with the symbol of Paris in the middle. This is a relatively new building in ...

Hotel Le Lanternon Ile de Ré

When I was in Ile de Ré in September, I stumbled on a new design hotel, Le Lanternon, almost by accident. I walked by a subtle sign that said Le Lanternon a few times and was intrigued as to what was inside the building. Finally, I took the time to investigate and I still couldn’t figure out what it was.   I rang the bell and a slim attractive man with silver flowing curls wearing loose yoga pants, tee-shirt, and Birkenstocks answered the door. His name was Jerome Perrin and I asked him i...

Underrated Latin American food

The countries that make up Latin America have strong gastronomic cultures. Those with culinary curiosity are almost certainly aware of Venezuelan arepas and well versed in Mexican tacos and tortillas. Perhaps a michelada or two have been sipped, but what of the unsung heroes like Guatemala’s 40-ingredient salad? Or the Haitian rebellion delicacy that’s prepared on New Year’s Day? Or what about Guyana’s self-preserving meat stew? These locally celebrated dishes, that more typically fly under ...

Trip to La Rochelle and Ile de Ré

I’ve always dreamt of going to Ile de Ré ever since I moved to Paris. Friends and acquaintances would sing their praises about the beauty, charm, and simplicity of the small island, a veritable paradise. I was also told it’s where well heeled and well to do Parisians go on vacances in the summer. In some ways it sounded like it was similar to Nantucket or Martha’s Vineyard.   It was the end of October and I wanted one last opportunity to go to a beach before the cold and gray weather set ...

The Best Alternative Tourist Attractions In Paris

As Paris is one of the top tourist destinations in the world, it is fair to assume that the city of love will be filled with crowds and long lines. One does not travel hours on end to maneuver through groups of people to get to the Eiffel Tower, for example. Sometimes taking the off-beaten path leads you to even more special of places. It is good to explore and steer away from places in the city that are highly commercialized. Nonetheless, your experience in Paris is bound to be memorable. Exp...

Zhitkov and the Modernist Novel.

I’m finally reading Boris Zhitkov‘s Виктор Вавич (Viktor Vavich), and my thoughts on reading the opening paragraphs were as follows, in this order: “No wonder Pasternak liked it; this is a modernist novel; this guy has definitely read Bely.” Here is the opening (my translation, then the Russian): The sunny day poured across the city. At noon the empty streets were languishing. In the Vaviches’ courtyard the wind stirs the straw and gives up — too lazy to raise it. A puppy has placed its muzzle ...

“Saint Martin lived and breathed ...

“Saint Martin lived and breathed the virtue of liberality, since he gave all he had, not in worldly possessions, since he had next to none to give, but he gave back to his neighbor through his good works all the invaluable spiritual gifts God had given him.” -Kevin Vost, Hounds of the Lord
