Update, Paris

Hello dear readers.
 On a rare occassion, I'm able to be on-line. WiFi is a bit more prevalent here in Paris but we are on the go most of the time. So, here I am, briefly on-line and since I can't take the time to write to everyone individually, I'm doing a brief post. 

Istanbul was a very lovely experience. Not just being in a place that was really foreign to us, but meeting Mail Artists, Katerina and Kemal,  and Katerina's friend Mustafa, and N & J's friends, Julien and Ekin and their baby Sophie.  We walked lots, saw lots, ate good food, and I made mail art daily though couldn't send often. There are no post boxes on the streets and few post offices. We walked up hills and down hills, took boats and funiculars. All very exciting and new.

Ah, Paris! We're in Paris again and loving it. We've been here since Monday night, doing lots of walking, visiting favorite neighborhoods and shops and looking at art and people watching and riding the metro and the bus. Tomorrow, we take the train to Grenoble to visit another friend for a few days, then back to Paris for a final couple days. A whirlwind trip this time.

I wish I could post photos. Imagine the Bosphorus. We took a ferry across it to Asia. Just imagine the Eiffel Tower. We walked under it yesterday.

I'm making and mailing mail art daily. There are post boxes everywhere, the same for Post Offices. Adieu until I can post again.

Oh Mim, it sounds wonderful. I'm sure the trip will be fodder for some very interesting posts -- and mailart -- when you're back. In the meantime, have fun and enjoy!
