75015 PARIS

Hi Everyone,
We have a new home in Paris.  It’s a lovely 2 BR in the 15th arrondissement.  We get the keys next Tuesday.
When I envisioned my first Paris apartment, this is pretty much what I had hoped for us.  I will say that I had low expectations for the kitchen and it did not exceed them.  We have to supply everything (stove, oven, cabinets).  There is a nice cut out for that washer/dryer or a refrigerator and another small area for a small fridge.   We’re going for the larger washer/dryer since there is not a laundry in sight and with the small oven/stove in the other area.  There are also no closets so we’ll be heading to BHV (one of my favorite stores in Paris) or good ol’ Ikea for some wardrobes.  Luckily, this is pretty standard in Paris so there are places to go to get everything we need.
I will be getting my blog organized in the next week but with terrible jet lag and just getting our “house in order” and am a bit behind.
We can’t wait for visitors once we get all our stuff (mid-May if we’re lucky).  I’ll keep everyone posted.

    I love your idea of a blog. Today, Saturday, I stayed in the house in case you called. When it was 11 pm your time, I gave up and gardened and cleaned the chicken coop. I just did 15 minutes of power back rest and I am ready to prepare the oysters and clams George Curth brought by today. He received two jars of jam and a half dozen eggs. Both of us felt good about the encounter.
    We are going to an Easter party tomorrow, then having friends come for dinner. Love to you.

    Sorry about the typo above. Intended to say that I will enjoy living again in Paris vicariously through your blog.

    P.S. The American Library in Paris and the Red Wheelbarrow Bookstore (22, rue St. Paul, 75004) have interesting author lecture series in English.
