Where am I?
Still in Paris, but of late I wonder. What is this “Winter Wonderland”?
Snow is predicted this whole week with temperatures to reach as low as -6 degrees. (Ok, that’s in Celsius to be dramatic, but still! 21 degrees Fahrenheit if you want the conversion).
I much prefer snow to rain – what we usually get around these parts – but please let me complain just a wee bit: it’s freezing!
I continue to be a hermit, hunkering down in my (poorly-insulated) apartment, but sometimes I do have to leave for basic staples.
Maybe not the most beckoning of images, right?
You know me by now, don’t you? What do you think I did?
You are correct. I went in, of course. You just never know…
And as I suspected: cuteness lay behind that battered door:
I love these narrow little streets, the lovely residences behind the rough doors. Paris is great at this kind of thing.
I didn’t tarry for too long as I saw someone starting to walk down. While I always take a sneak peak, I’m always afraid of getting yelled at, too. Call me a timid adventurer. Or a bold scaredy-cat. Not sure which.
And so, for this Tuesday’s TIP, I urge you to *always* open the door and see what you find.
Even closed doors in Paris are often no match. Door code, you say? I am not allowed? During the day, the code is often switched off. If you see a round button without any marking, press it – the door might just open!
Pleased with my discovery, I still hurried back home. I mean, it was still cold out. And I had already been a whole two blocks!
