I know that I’ve been spending far too much time away from home (electronically, that is – I won’t be able to physically leave Brittany until the mud dries out – anticipated for sometime in July.)
But, there is a method in my madness (although there may well be madness in my method!)
You see, I am looking for that perfect Life in France blog; one that contains those essential elements… posts about 2CVs, mushrooms and Lingerie!
And that’s why I’m in Paris today, checking out Polly vous Francais.
This is a great start; a bit like being 3-0 up against Man U. at half time!
And then, I discovered not two but three posts about lingerie – this is getting serious; like being 3-0 up against Man U. at half time and then Crouch coming on and scoring a hat-trick! Check out… French Men Talk About Lingerie (I bet they do, dirty little rascals!), Linger in an Online Lingerie Lounge (I bet they do, dirty little rascals!) and finally, From the “What Next” department – Wonderbra Nipple – Well, I never! Ooh, la la!
But surely, I hear you ask, there must be more to Life in France than 2CVs and Lingerie? Even in Paris?
Of course there is. There’s food and wine and the art of civilised conversation.
Or just salivate over this Traffic Stopper (yum, yum, piggies! Also my favourite food of all time!)
Sadly, not one post about mushrooms but, I guess you don’t get many wild mushrooms growing in the heart of Paris.
Perhaps that’s why I’m not as fond of Paris as I am of my wet and windy Brittany? Who knows?
Mushrooms or not, I suggest that you take a wander round Paris with Polly vous Francais. I don’t think you’ll find it time wasted; Start at the beginning (16th May, 2006) with this brilliantly funny glimpse of Le Look Parisien.
All the best
