After going Paris crazy and desperately trying to figure out when Alan and I can go back (I just asked him last night when his next trip to Paris will be), I think I have become a Pinay Francophile. I have fallen in love with Paris that I have made a decision to try and study to learn how to speak French on my own. This weekend, I’m doing some reading and will be working on finding a speaking partner here in Manhattan after a few weeks of working on the basics. My website chronicling my first time in Paris will be up soon.
Yes, I can’t wait to go back to the City of Lights.. hopefully soon..
