                Saturday is always fun at all of the major cities since everybody is out enjoying the sun.  All the city of lights needs now is the ocean! 

Okay my day of today here is my thoughts i met mostly tourists as today is sunday and all the peresians escape to either their country homes or they hide from us!
I have since met lovely women and men and although the two relationships of french men have been comical after awhile
the relationships of the french people is truly special;
you must  travel to the la motte picquet
farmers markets right under the train station they have the greatest selection of fresh octopuss fish eggs vegatables
fruit you name it plus side by side with lingerie and cosmetics
It is as if you can say hey honey lets pick up some octopussy
o and while we are at it let me grab some great eyeshadow a couple of tubes of lipstick and im needing underwear...
     Oh yes and of course Boyd said to remind you that they 
have a much better selection of tights and pantyhose here
in all kinds of colors so make sure you pick these up while you run out to grab the asparagus!
     The closest i can think of is the Italian market at Philadelphia which has the best selection of fish and meat of the entire city and everybody travels there to do their shopping; The market at La Motte makes me want to ask someone if i can use their kitchen just for the day so i can
cook octopuss and asparagus and some lovely strawberries
along with some little herbs and of course my all time favorite the all american egg!
     Its all done with such nonchalence and as a foreigner
i am at awe of the selections of shoes and jewelry and nuts and candy and jeans and gloves and shrimp and meat and on and on and of course the little lovely perisian ladys all dressed up on sunday with their salon hair and their perfect makeup and their wardrobe that costs what i earn of one year and they wear on a saturday!
     I love the sophistication and style of the early 20s era
of the flappers and the bygone glamour and that is found side by side with the young mother or young student running out to the market for a quick pick for the day.  Macdougal from new york and los angelos here

 

Here is the thoughts of the day.Today i had a nice little chat with a very intelligent parisian who has been at the city for 6 generations

And who remembers the wars of world war 1 from his grandfather and world war two from his father and mother. Something that I did not know is that at world war 1 every family at france lost at least one person from that war every family.  That number is staggering to think that every family of france was personally affected by the loss of a member of its immediate family.He said that the fear of Parisians now is to the future that there is fearless of not the past, that the French see to the future and remember not the past in the context of fear but of indexing it awa

 

His grandmother was the first woman driver at paris and one of the first women to divorce her husband

Twenties which is almost un heard especially for the French he said since they tend to live and let live and find other entertainment and affection elsewhere when the marriages disapate, o well, my motto is hmm interesting file that one away for another day…

I have found a fragileness of the French people innocence sweetness touching vulnerability that

I have only felt here. There is a guard on their silly side if there is one we all know that Americans were silly.  Especially the girls we tend to make silly jokes or see the silly side of life at least the

Bif buffy and skip group I associate with on the personal side of my life.  For instance when I heard people at the 10th etudiant place I tried to check into on Thursday and every one being full

And I of course need housing sponsorship so I am all tired and trying to be a journalist and talk to people and try to finde housing and lugging my luggage very heavy everywhere and I finally found it today for 4 days til Monday when of course I ll need to find housing again!  But my friend warren today smiled when he heard a group of, not so nice,  not so, friendly making fun of all of my trips back and forth with my luggage in the search for rooms for the 3 days and I had actually already found booked and made my bed at one of these lovely places but of course the unfriendly group didn’t know that, so my friend warren buys three subway sandwiches sneaks them into his duffle bag and off he goes right under the nose of the not so friendly group which of course only made me giggle at his intelligent yet silly humor, so I guess warren said that I snuck right under that subway and snagged three nights…very clever warren wherever you may be.
