|I spotted the aftermath of a little Paris|
pick-me-up. Naturally, the waiter was in no
hurry to clear things away and pick up
the check—these folks could have occupied
that table until closing time, I bet.

|On a sunny Sunday in September, |
what could be more fun than
going to the Jardin du Luxembourg
with your papa and sailing your
boat in the pond?

|It's almost rush hour at the Nyugati|
(i.e., Western) Railway Terminal in Budapest.
This beautiful structure was built in the 1870s
by Gustave Eiffel's company—and Eiffel's
hand is evident here, I think (more than
a decade before he built his famous tower).

|I liked the expression on these ladies'|
faces just as much as I liked the
ones on the people in the ad above them.
So I tried to be sneaky with my phone in the
Budapest metro—however, I don't think
I fooled the woman on the right.

|One morning recently, this was my view|
of the Manhattan Bridge and the sky over the city
(from the Brooklyn Bridge). And, I swear,
this photo is entirely un-edited!

|And why shouldn't they be happy?|
They're young, beautiful, in love, and (here's the
icing on the gâteau) they live in Paris!
I met them at a (now) über-trendy rooftop bar
where my friend and I were the oldest
people there by 30 or 40 years. We don't care
so much about that and had a great time
chatting with Sarah and Frédéric. In my experience,
the young people who are really worth getting
to know are usually the ones who think you are too.

|I know—this picture is such a cliché. But|
you know what my favorite part* of
this huge church is? Those little red doors
on either side, right at the roofline.
I would love to know what's behind them.
*Okay, my second favorite. First are the bells;
I don't like the climb but I love to
be right next to the belfry when they toll.
