I've borrowed this photo of Recoleta Cemetery
from my daughter Lila. She took it
a few years ago when she was in Buenos Aires,
where I've been this past week.
Now I'm in Montevideo, and tonight I'm going
to board a ship and head south, where
there will be only the sketchiest Internet connection—
or, more likely, none whatsoever.
I'll be home and blogging again on Nov. 28.
Please come back then; I'm hoping to
have a whole lot of pictures to share with you.

At my favorite Paris restaurant: Circonstances.
We were saying goodnight to Franck and Karin, the
very talented owners of this place—and I
noticed that they were ready to pour the wine
for the next day's lucky customers.

This is the Pavillon du Lac, in the Parc de Bercy,
which I visited for the first time on my
recent visit to Paris. It's worth traveling to
the outer arrondissements—where I never went
when I lived there long ago, because it
was considered too dangerous. A whole lot
has changed in a half century (!).

I always try to visit the Louvre pyramids
at night when I'm in Paris.
Last time, I saw four or five Asian couples
posing there. It was Paris Fashion Week—but
I think all of them were there strictly
for themselves. Brides and grooms, probably.
At any rate, they all looked beautiful.

Not sure what you need to accomplish to earn one
of these, or whether you can actually just
buy one (seems wrong if you can). They're on display
at Bacqueville, one of my all-time fave shops
in the arcade of the Palais Royal, in Paris.
