I’ve been back from Paris for a week, and the memories of our adventures are still fresh and enjoyable to revisit. I had a wonderful time, from beginning to end. A lot of it was spending time with Richard, and a lot of it was just being in Paris — but a lot of it also was the great place where we stayed. For that, I must say: Merci, Josette! You were a fabulous hostess, and your apartment was just perfect.
I’ve turned in my VRBO evaluation for the apartment and it is a rave review, indeed. It won’t be posted for 7 days, because the website carefully checks to make sure that reviews are factually based and written by people who actually stayed at the location. I’ll try to remember to link to it once it appears. In the meantime, if you are interested in seeing more about where Richard and I stayed, it is VRBO owner listing 223723. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to go to Paris, get out of the hotel rut, and get a taste of what it is like to actually live in a Parisian neighborhood.
Edited to add: my review of Josette’s place is now available on-line.
