It’s Coronavirus hell. Paris is locked down for 15 days and, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, so am I. Travel is impossible for who knows how long but I am consoled by my memories. I’ll share them with you. Here is the first installment of a series of photo essays illustrating 50 things I miss about Paris. What do you love and miss about the French capital?

    Ruthie, Don, & Ynessa Thank you especially now. Too many to list but Bonjour Paris helps. We miss just these few, some current, some long gone. Monoprix fruits rouges tea, Hediard, Gargantua on Saint-Honore, The Tuileries, Angelina on Rivoli, Jacquemart-Andre museum, Christmas lights and all the bakery shops, the shopping, summertime when it gets dark so very very late, Easter time with all the chocolate displays
