Year of the Pig in Paris

Angelique leads the dance. The third women with the chicken fingers is Chris. One of the seated guests was trying to coach me about the hand movements for this dance but – it’s kind of like kareoke – the fun is in knowing you’re out of your league!

Happy Chinese New Year!

Today’s the day to visit Paris’s 13th arrondissement if you haven’t already. Metro: Porte de Choisy/Porte d’Ivry. There are many Chinese/Vietnamese/Cambodian restaurants to choose from. If you’re in the mood for Peking Duck, you need go no farther than the huge indoor Blvd. Massena/Euromarche shopping market complex where you’ll find the Peking Duck specialists of the neighborhood. (The restaurant Le Palais is located on the ground floor of the mall) across the street from Tricotin facing Ave de Choisy. It’s a few steps from the mall elevators if you’re using the underground car park.
