DAY 3 IN PARIS : l'excitation
With the evening sunset impatiently on hold and le Boulevard Montmartre and le Carrefour Richelieu-Drouot, teasing us to explore, we were quickly on the telephone to announce our arrival.
Eric invited us to welcoming drinks and Michael soon came to fetch us. What a thrill after all these months to be meeting at last.
A quick sortie onto the Boulevard, while Madame powdered something or other, was time enough to hear and smell the atmosphere to pretend that all this was true.
It couldn't be ? It's just a dream ?
Michael arrived and directed us. We laughed and nibbled and drank and talked and joked and just felt so relaxed.
Dinner at a nearby restaurant was proposed.
We were now, really in Paris and on such a high, we wouldn't have argued with a soul.
