Me and my one suitcase (44 pounds) finally made it.
I found a room in an apartment to sublet. It’s in the 19th arrondissement–nothing trendy, exciting, or touristy–just very French. My two roommates are such genuinely nice people. They have fully embraced me. We sit around the kitchen and drink tea and “cafe” for hours on end.
I have already had several “blog post worthy” events, but I just may have to share those later. It’s almost 3 am and I’ve got a severe case of “le jet lag.”
