That's the best way I know how to descibe this day...
It started off as any "normal" day for me in Paris, as I am beginning to "Just Live" here.
I caught the Metro Line 3 to Lutce Lange, to attend the Saturday morning French-English conversation group since Adrian Leeds (my boss) wants me to improve my French.
The conversation was interesting as always, 45 minutes in English, then 45 minutes in complete French. Today, I learned that the French have different words for the hair on your head vs. the hair on your arms, legs, and the body in general. I learned the word for "ass" as in donkey is also used to describe a stubborn person in French and also, learned that the area of Bretagne, France has their own language called Breton...the more I learn, the more I realize there's so much I don't know in this world.
After the converstation group...we met a few friends for coffee at Cafe Francis...
Linda, Me, Adrian, and Dale
Today, 27 Jun 2009 is also the day Paris celebrates Gay Pride. I will post a few photos with the only caption I can think of...OMG!
The parade in Paris is called Marche des Fiertes LGBT. It's a massive parade that reportedly draws more than 500,000 spectators and participants!
OMG, Where are his clothes?
