Coucou. C’est moi.

As a component of my September self-promotion blitz, I broke down and personified thefrancofly™. When Facebook loses its interest, what better way to create one’s idealized self than through a self-portrait?  And invent some dream sunglasses and trim off a few extra holiday kilos at the same time.  I need to draw people more often!  After a week of indulgences over the vacation, Body by Bretagne is not becoming past August.   But unlike people (and myself), sandwiches will always be more forgiving.  Allez, back to the beef.

This being the first Sunday of the month, do not forget to check out a selection of Paris’s museums for free.  Find the complete list here.  We have our eyes set on the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature in the post-brunch hours.

Bon dimanche!

Pigeon on Pigeon.

“Birds do it.  Bees do it.  Even educated fleas do it.”  Cole Porter wasn’t the first to witness a pigeon totem pole firsthand in the City of Lights.  These lovebirds literally can’t get off one other!  Needless to say, pigeons have got a good life here, much to the chagrin of homosapiens and sparrows alike.  They are free to roam without a Navigo.  They get weeks of paid vacation.  They eat the choicest crumbs in the world, but they never get fat!  They are a little aloof, but it’s probably cultural, right?  But the life of a French pigeon isn’t completely careless; they are also on restaurant menus.
