I am in Paris

Well, strictly speaking I am presently in the inner Parisian suburb of Clichy rather than the city itself. I am planning on spending the weekend mostly pottering around in the suburbs. More later.

Observation of the day

My mother's Pecan Pie recipe is a dangerous weapon. I should use it with care.

(Of course, as a cook, I generally take it as a compliment if the dishes from which I served the food are completely empty at the end of the evening).

Low cost airline update

It seems that Ryanair has recently added or is about to add flights not just to Porto from London but also to Santander and Santiago de Compostela. It looks like I visited that north and north western section of Iberia during its last summer of being largely free of Anglophones. (Do I mind this? Not really. I did really like the place, and it is now easy for me to visit bits of it (even for a weekend) without having to make absurd long distance journeys).
