My stay with my hostess Catherine and her husband Francois was the best. They included me in French family life and helped me so often when I needed it. Some of these were, going with me to the ATM as I don't use one at home in Spokane and checking on how to get to places on the metro like the Espace Dali museum and shop in Montmartre, the Jacquemart-Andre Museum and the Henri Cardin Art Nouveau collection located above Maxim's restaurant in the center of Paris. We had so many good conversations about English and French and ways of living in Paris and the US. I had a small cold when I arrived and she helped me get over it as she is an extremely well-educated pharmacist. She helped me get an on-line ticket to the Eiffel tour to avoid standing in line at the site for the ticket and was so good when I stressed out checking in and getting my boarding pass with Air France when it had been on strike for some weeks. Catherine was consistently helpful in accessing my email several times a week. She has a washer and dryer and assisted me with getting my laundry clean. The apartment is very good and located in the Beaugrenelle area within sight of the Eiffel tower from the street in front of the apt. house. The area is quite safe and so convenient to everything including a one block walk to the metro. You can stand at her windows on the 4th floor above ground level (5th in the US,use the apt house elevator)and watch people in the street going into and out of the Monoprix across the street as though live on Google. I was fascinated by the really successful bicycle program right on the street below to see people use and check in the bicycles and the maintenance trucks show up to service and transfer the bikes each morning. You see all kinds of people including tourists accessing these bikes all over Paris. The bedroom was cozy, convenient and private. The apt. itself is very tranquil as they've installed great modern double paned windows for quiet and efficiency. Since the toilet area is separate from the bathroom on the corridor, it's very available even though shared. This trip had been a dream of mine since I was in my 20's as I would really have liked to live in Paris or elsewhere in France to experience the life and practice the language for 6 months. This month+ visit was one where I had the time of my life and felt that Catherine and Francois were my friends. I loved staying with these lovely people and feel so lucky. I hope to return in 2017 and will keep in touch for sure.
