Voilà! Welcome to A French Frye in Paris, and the first post of my move from New York to Paris, exactly two weeks after my arrival. A bit of guilt that it’s taken me this long; I wonder if Picasso waited two weeks to start painting when he moved into Montmartre a little over a century ago. But to be fair, he probably didn’t concern himself with multiple trips to Ikea to pick out just the right set of kitchen tongs.
The aim of this blog is to chronicle my transition and integration into French culture through its food, scenery, people and language. With camera and notebook in hand, I’ll be recording my experiences and sharing them here in hopes of giving a glimpse into life as a Parisian, discovered through the eyes of an American. My hope is to intrigue, enlighten, inform, and above all entertain. Hope you enjoy the visit.
D’accord, c’est parti! (Ok, let’s go!)
