New York City?

Since when does doing large deals for EMEA include trips to NYC? Oh well, I am not going to complain about a chance to visit the Big Apple!

Dinner with Eubankorato's

Enjoying the micro brews at Frog 16.

New apartment tour - bedroom

Here is one of the bedrooms. It is a bit hard to see without a wide angle lens, but it does have its own bathroom.

New apartment tour - kitchen

The kitchen is recently refinished with the modern gear, including an "American Refrigerator", which is a rare item here.

New apartment tour - dining room

New apartment tour - living room again

New apartment tour - entry

Many people have been asking for shots of the new apartment, so here you go. This is the entrance hall, complete with unopened packing boxes at the end of the hall!

Eubanks - Comporato visit

John and Andrea, along with Lisette and Kristina, stopped by Paris for a few days at the end of their European vacation. Their flight out was canceled, so I'll get to see them for one more day.

Moving Day, part 1

Leaving the old apartment. Note how much of the wall fell down behind the armoire. And yes, those black spots are mold.

Dessert arrived

Ooh la la, we must extend the strike!

On strike in Paris

Our close friend Susan, an American who moved to France years ago, is on strike from her job with a large French organization. In solidarity with her Socialist colleagues, we all went out for a traditional French lunch including Chateaubriande and Bordeaux, for only $150 per person. Vive la France!
