my mom’s been visiting since last week, and it’s been great to revisit all the old tourist haunts with her, seeing them through her first-timer’s eyes. mostly mellow days, knocking a few things off the itinerary each afternoon then coming back to the warmth of the apartment. mom heads back to the states on thursday morning, then i’ve got just a few more days here before returning to turkey.
what an interesting month it’s been here in france. so different from what i expected. quiet, sleepy, good.
