My son and I are leaving our small town in southeastern United States to live for a year in a small town in southeastern France. It couldn't possibly be THAT different, right?

Paris, baby!

After Poitiers, Jed and I went to Paris on Saturday and spent the night in an apartment that Amy found for us in the 19th arrondissement.  Despite the bitter cold, we went out in the late afternoon to see the Parc de la Villette.  The boys played for less than an hour before we had to give up and go back to the apartment for pizza and a movie.
It is rare to have to make two changes on the Paris métro, but our stop, Botzaris, was way out in the middle of nowhere so it took us at least forty minutes to get anywhere.

Sunday, February 5th was the first Sunday of the month so that meant that all of Paris' museums were free!  We decided to go to the museum of contemporary art, the Centre Pompidou.  Jed was not thrilled at the idea, but when we got there, he took over my camera and photographed almost every piece of art in the place.
