In Paris with Pouiky

In Paris with Pouiky

Today I met pouikysland in Paris, and we walked a while (and had lunch).
The weather was very bright and shiny this morning. Despite that and the not-so-wee hour (we met at 11 am), there was nearly no one around... Hence, pictures of Paris.
Lots of.

Ducks! ...man, they're evil. :D

And you know, it is unspeakably cool to look at these pictures and realise with a jolt I've seen some of these places before. And it's nice to see Ste. Michel in the daylight. ^^;;

I got your parcel today by the grace of my kind neighbours, so thank you. :) And I know I've been sucktastic in the communications lately, but I think I might be coming around...once I get back from Japan, do you still want to try and sort Italy out? I need to hit up my bosses again about my time off because they're being asses about it, but in the new year they might be more helpful. Or not. But I'm leaving anyway so maybe they'll be nice. O_o

I know the feeling, I have an odd fondness for "Charmed" because of their shots of San Francisco that make me think "Ooooh, I've been there! I recognize this place" ^^;,

Ah, I'm glad the parcel arrived in time for Christmas :)
I've had problems to post it as you may have guessed from previous issues.

Yeah, we could try to sort out a trip to Italy when you're back from Japan.

J'espérais bien que tu pourrais les voir comme ça ;)
Si j'avais attendu pour les poster, me connaissant je ne l'aurais jamais fait...

Bon retour!
