    Another very lovely set of photos that express your love and appreciation for the French aesthetic. Thank you, Fern, and thanks to Cheryl Mueller for noting her hotel. Sounds ideal, and I will recommend it to others.

    I miss tiny white strawberries I buy and devour while I’m walking on the rue des Martyrs. I miss spending hours browsing in Shakespeare and Company. I miss my Hotel St Paul Rive Gauche where my friends in the hotel leave a note and chocolates on my pillow welcoming me back to my second home. I miss the cafes and the lovely French people!
