Aw thanks. I'm glad I could help someone learn something. In New Mexico I just lived with it so much. And then I went with a friend and her husband to Yosemite and we were at the area of the fire about 6 weeks ago which makes it even more real too. it's an area where a lot of staff live. I heard this morning about 50 homes evacuated have now been allowed to go home. Still fighting the fire but I'm glad these people have a home they are now allowed to return too! I heard the northern part of New Mexico is having a ton of rain and a lot of flooding from burn areas from the fires where there is nothing to hold the water back. Ground plants and shrubs do slow it down but not if burned out. The same would happen in the southern part, where I lived, except they aren't getting near as much rain as they normally get down south! Everything time I see a coin on the ground and pick it up I think our you guys and our little thread we had! 702 days ago
How wonderful that you shared your memories of the Cité Universitaire and your Bastille Day there!!! The Maison de l'Inde still looks beautiful, I didn't post any picture of it because I didn't find it especially 'typical', but it was very nice.
Thank you so much for your kind comment on my blog 'Sunday morning walk around the Buttes-Chaumont'. It is said that Paris is made of many different villages... But I must say that in Quartier d'Amérique, it really does look like a village (when in many Parisian 'villages' you need a lot of imagination to see one!!!). I hope your week started beautifully!
