La Place des Vosges
My happiest three hours in Paris to date were spent with my lovely aunt Lisa, walking around the Marais. I hope she forgives me for putting this (very cute, I think!) picture of her on my blog. It's about time I put a few people pictures on here, anyway!Lisa arrived just in time to save me from a serious bout of homesickness! It was a huge blessing to be greeted with a genuine, American hug (instead of a pair of awkward kisses--god, I'm starting to detest "la bise"!), to speak only English for a few hours, and to hear some first-hand news about the family. Lisa, thanks for a lovely dinner! I can't wait to see you again on your next trip.
