Totally Frenched Out

Whew, where is the time going? What a busy weekend - L from "Toutes Directions" came up to Paris Friday and we went straight from the train station to the rhumrhum bar. I unfortunately did not follow my own advice and drank more than 2 rhumrhums. Which meant we got home pretty late Friday night, and ended up getting a slow start on Saturday. We were able to walk around the Rue Mouffetard area a bit though, and then headed on over to the Jardin des plantes.

Saturday night, I'd invited a bunch of people over for a Mexican food. Since my place is so small, I finagled Kendra into letting me hold it chez elle. Yum. I need to make Mexican food more often (or at least my Minnesota-version of Mexicanfood, lol). I also attempted to make mojitos for the first time, with mixed results - some people said they were good, others thought they were too strong. Though now that I think about it, maybe the people who said they were okay were just being polite!

And now I find myself back on the road again - I'm in the Pays de la Loire all week for work (read: creepy Jesus country). Things are still a big mess with my Tunisia trip, but supposedly I will be over there all next week. It was just really unfortunate though, since I had had a lot of things I needed for this week shipped with the Tunisian stuff, and since it's stuck in Tunisian customs, I don't have it for this week. Which means I will probably have to come back here again in November now, but oh well. There are worse things in the world than spending half of one's time in Paris and the other half in the French countryside.

You party girl :)

Take it easy on the road.
Humm; creepy Jesus country ? I've never been through that region.
It could make for a fascinating write up.

I'm here since I saw that you linked to my blog... thanks :)
I was not aware that there was a Jesus Country in France. Good to know, since I'm living in Godless Heathen Land (Grenoble).

Hey, just because I thought the mojitos were strong doesn't mean they weren't good. I finished 2, didn't I? :)
Too bad for the Tunisia crap, but I hope your week goes well!

Sorry we missed you on Friday. It sounds like it was a great time!

Creepy Jesus country - they have that out here? At least they have beautiful chateaux too, which is more than you can say about creepy Jesus country in the US.

Sam, what is this Jesus country thing you are talking about? I know about the Edit de Nantes, which more or less legalized protestantism centuries ago. Are there a lot of fundamentalist protestants over in the Nantes area?
