Project Optimism : The Perks of Being in a Cast in Paris

Project Optimism : The Perks of Being in a Cast in Paris

FIVE WEEKS. Five long weeks with a resin made “ball and chain” stretching from the start of my toes to just below my knee. Misery, you would think. And yes while it was cumbersome, and the novelty got old really fast, I like to look on the bright side and have decided to reflect on the perks of wearing a cast in Paris.

Now that I can magically eat dairy again, I have been going slightly overboard on occasionoften. My friend Holly, from the expat group I am a member of, who has been in Paris for just a short year suggested a place to me that SHE discovered and was très enthusiastic to show to me (so I could share it with all of…

A Tale of Two Hotel Openings : Partied or Pampered

A Tale of Two Hotel Openings : Partied or Pampered
