Please join this weekly meme. Grab a copy of the photo above and link back to An Accidental Blog. Share with the rest of us your passion for France. Did you read a good book set in France? See a movie? Take a photo in France? Have an adventure? Eat a fabulous meal or even just a pastry? Or if you're in France now, go ahead and lord it over the rest of us. We can take it.
Maybe we can all satisfy our yearnings for France, until we get there again.
This is the last Monday in July and I've been celebrating Paris in July this month hosted by Thyme for Tea and Bookbath.
The only times I've been in Paris in July were at ages 20 and 23. I took a student tour of multiple countries at age 20, between my junior and senior years of college. We stopped in Paris after Rome and before heading to the Cote d'Azur.
At 23, I escorted two little girls and their father to Paris where we spent a few weeks, the father at a medical conference, before we flew to Corsica for the rest of the month.
Perhaps it is those visits that make me think of Paris whenever I smell diesel fuel in the heat of summer.
Here's a photo from my son's trip to Paris in April. It's panoramic, so click on it to make it larger for the full impact.
Thanks for playing along today.
