Paris, Day 1

So I've survived another crazy conference. Sadly I don't have too many photos of Barcelona this year.  We just worked so much and I decided to make a dash for Paris as soon as I could.  Also I was exhausted.  I think I averaged about 5 - 6 hours of sleep each night.  Last night I got about 2.  Though of course that was my own fault.  Boy do the Fox people know how to party!

Now I've made it to Paris.  Sometimes the best experiences are the ones you don't expect.  So today, it was riding on the back of a motorcycle from the airport instead of in a taxi.  Yep, that's right, he strapped my luggage to the back, put a jacket and a helmet on me and drove me into Paris on a Harley. It was amazing.  :-)

Now I'm sitting in the flat I've rented for the next week, trying to stay awake long enough to not be up at 4AM.  As I sit here and write this, my downstairs neighbors are clearly rehearsing for some kind of show.  So lovely piano music and French singing are drifting up through the central courtyard.  For me, the weather is perfect.  It's slightly cool outside and I'm sitting in the living room with the windows open.  It's so perfect, it's almost a movie cliche.  And yet, it's not.

Yep, I'd definitely be willing to live here.  Even if I will have to go up and down three flights of stairs.  I've got a few things planned for the next week, some I've done before and some are new.  Can't wait to share everything with you all.
