Paris 2005

Thanks to my sister Linda for watching the kids... and my buddy Frank for watching the shop, Dawn and I stole away to Paris for 8 days. I know it would be beautiful in spring or summer, but we enjoyed the attention you get when going off-season. The weather was actually very nice. We rented an apartment about three minutes from Notre Dame in a district called Marais. Any time day or night this place is alive with activity.

Our favorite things were the walks(about five hours a day), the food(didn't have a bad meal the whole time), shopping and an assortment of museums. My sisters went last year at this time and I thought about us taking off then, but it was Anthony Bourdain's show on Paris about two months ago that cinched it for me.

I booked everything and found the apartment on the internet. We would recommend Paris wholeheartedly to any of our family and friends. We simply had a blast!

Hey Max & Dawn,
If I didn't know better I'd think you two were natives of Paris (the pix of you two overlooking the city) How cool you went to Paris! Sal and I talk about going someday too. Maybe someday will be sooner than we think. Hope your Christmas is bright and prosperous.
love you,
Kev and Sal
