Postcard from Paris

To be in Paris in April is a sublime experience. The cherry blossoms are out on every corner and this time around we were blessed and privileged to be able to revisit the beautiful cathedral of Notre Dame barely two weeks before the tragic fire in which it was nearly destroyed. But apart from the churches which are  repositories of great art, we always make another pilgrimage each time we are in this beautiful city.

We have to visit the famous literary café, Les Deux Magots at least twice, if not more times, because it was frequented by Jean-Paul Sartre, who is my husband’s all-time hero! The great man used to come here virtually  on a daily basis with his consort, Simone de Beauvoir, author of “The Second Sex” and quite a notable personality in her own right, and the pair of them used to hold court over coffees and wines, surrounded by  their acolytes.
