I'm quite glad to be home, as you can probably tell...
So I've returned to the blogosphere. So much has happened while I was gone! I need to catch up on everything! Heeelp!
First let me tell you WHY I was in Paris.
I realize that on this blog I've never really explained where I'm from and where I've lived. People are pretty amazed when they've heard my story... I hope I won't be too confusing.
My mom is American and my dad is Argentinian/Italian. They met in New Orleans, fell madly in love, and because of my dad's job (doctor with MSF, which is Doctors Without Borders) they moved a lot around Africa... and in 1999 I was born in Nairobi, Kenya (where they had been for two years but we moved to Uganda when I was four weeks old)
Two years later my mom couldn't stand life as an expat wife in Africa anymore and we moved to Paris. We lived there up until two years ago when we moved here to Lyon.
But our tiny apartment in Paris is truly a gem. We are so attached to it that my parents could not give it up and they rent it out by the year to expat families... and when we're between renters we get to have a vacation in Paris! Which is what happened this summer.
It was a great trip. Just wonderful. Being in Paris brought back so many memories and I did almost everything I had hoped to do (I will write more tomorrow and post the pictures!). But I do admit, while away, I missed my kitties and my fabulous sofa. ;)
By the way, something went wrong with the automatic posting. I wrote two posts which were supposed to be published on the 23rd and 27th but for some reason it didn't work!
