1 February marks what I call my « anniversaire Français » or the date of arrival in France. In my case it was: 1 February, 1990.
I arrived at Charles De Gaulle airport, carrying my wordly posssesions; a small suitcase and a cardboard box. I remember the customs agent pulling me over and giving me the “second degree” about the box.
To the intention of Customs, only… Always beware of dangerous winter clothes that come in booby trapped cardboard boxes. 🙂
I have to buy myself a slice of French pastry today, “just because”. 🙂
Unfortunately, I can’t share pastry with you guys, so I will leave you with a few photos that have a France feeling…
Double take on the Eiffel tour.
Lovers at the Rodin museum, Paris. This photo had already been featured last year.
Jams and delicacies galore…
Old wooden home, Place Plumereau, Tours.
A quiet corner, Rodin museum, Paris.
Under the marroniers/Chestnut trees, Parc de Sceaux in the Paris suburbs.
Boats on the Vienne river, at Chinon in Touraine.
Have a wonderful Friday. I will be back soon with the weekly photo challenge and a little photo experiment that I will talk about next week.
A bientôt, les amis/ See you soon, friends!
