Twelve Hours In Paris With A Wedding Dress
“Paris is always a good idea.” Audrey Hepburn
Check into a hotel so you do not leave the wedding dress in a taxi. Put the wedding dress in the closet.
See Syrian refugees begging for money and militia on the streets. Give away my Euros from Amsterdam. Big reality check.
Drive past Eiffel Tower and Arc Du Triomphe. Take bad photos from moving car.
Stop for lunch at La Carette.
Eat croissants, omelet, nicoise salad and cafe au lait. Have everything French in one meal.
Buy fabulous French pharmacy beauty products.
Go to Versailles.
Walk around the gardens and Petite Trianon.
A little Louis XlV and a bit of Marie Antoinette go a long way.
Drive to the Louis Vuitton Foundation by Frank Gehry. Get out and take a photo so it looks like I was there.
Crowd five people into a tiny French hotel room with the wedding dress. Two are napping. One is in the shower. Another is fixing her carry on luggage.The fifth one goes downstairs and has tea. The one fixing her carry on luggage left her favorite bracelet from Cambodia in that hotel. They called to tell her.
After much restaurant deliberation, the not sleeping people have appetizers at the hotel. The not sleeping people are the women.
Go back to the airport with the wedding dress. Have macarons at airport Laduree.
Fly safe to Africa,
