We’re back in Paris, After Dark, for the next two weeks!
Steve from Mendocino – Paris
Since WaterGirl cancelled Paris (I expect her to cancel Christmas, next), I’ve decided to keep Paris alive with a number of posts of my own Paris photos. Kidding, WaterGirl. You breathe so much life into our Balloon Juice experience. Thank you.
As I mentioned in an earlier post, I would have loved to be situated in Paris – for the restaurants, for the urban beauty, for the French culture, for the sophistication, for the energy. Mendocino has worked well for me, though.
While Mendocino restaurants lack particular interest, the food resources are at least as good as Paris’s but with different strengths and weaknesses, and my kitchen is far better than I could hope for in a Paris apartment. The natural beauty in Mendocino provides a spectacular counterpoint to the curated beauty of Paris. Mendocino’s small-town community is warm and progressive. And I have the ocean. Life has been good to me here.
