I returned from Paris a few days ago but haven’t yet resigned myself to returning to reality. Getting away to reset your brain is always a wonderful thing but this time it was really important. Trump’s narcissism, idiocy, and hatred is really just invading American society in every single way possible. It’s hard not to pay attention to it because we are bombarded by it daily. Sure, you can try to ignore it, but that isn’t a fix to his long term policies.
So it was wonderful to get away from the daily news dumps of his childish and irresponsible tweets.
Paris is always amazing. I won’t bore you with pictures (that’s what Instagram is for), but we stayed away from most of the big touristy things this time. We did get to the Picasso museum which is wonderful and in one of my favorite areas of Paris (Le Marais!)
Lola was fine. She was looked after while we were gone and immediately decided to use my back as a chair upon return (see pic above)
And now I see Trump is pushing a trade war against our allies. Oh good. That will work out well.
