>Well, if "Mayence" is French for "Moguntia"…#1013


…then hayell,  Pairis, Frayence* belongs to the territory.

The real story’s over on Paris through my lens which is an offshoot of Birmingham Alabama Daily Photo, run by a hoot of a woman running under the name of Virginia Jones (*That’s how she talks. I’ll admit to not understanding a lot..)

The other version’s up at YMBFA, but here’s a brief summary:

  • Fly to Paris at sparrow’s fart
  • Collect Virginia’s friend Mary (Queen of Arkansas Cincinatti) at CDG
  • Escort her into town
  • Following Mary’s instructions, enter Virginia’s (supposed) apartment block and ascend to 3rd floor before determining that the whole structure is a building site in imminent danger of collapse
  • Collect Virginia
  • Drink coffee
  • Walk around in circles (Place de Bastille circumnavigated twice…) looking for Peter the Divine and Owen
  • Have lunch
  • Discover multiple artists’ ateliers. All closed.
  • Walk around Place des Vosges (in circles…) looking for Peter the Divine and Owen. Again.
  • Discover a musical instrument shop beyond belief
  • Go to the airport
  • Get bumped off my flight
  • Get home at some ungodly hour
  • Miss all the soccer matches

Wouldn’t have missed it for the world
