ByAnn Mah June 23, 2019 In August 1949, a 20-year-old Jacqueline Bouvier arrived in France and began a year that would change her life. Before her marriages to Jack and Aristotle, before the glamour and the tragedy, before she lived in the White House or worked at a publishing house, she was a college student boarding a ship to spend her junior year abroad in Paris. With her French name and heritage (one-eighth French from her father’s side), she was already predisposed to admiring France. But the academic year of 1949 to 1950 cemented her passion, allowing her … [Read more...] about A Year in Paris That Transformed Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

ByAlexander Lobrano April 10, 2019 On a drizzly night in Paris, a crowd spilled out the door of Bouillon Julien and onto the slick sidewalk lining the rue du Faubourg Saint-Denis. The lure was a bargain-priced meal that promised to be surprising for both its quality and reasonable price: less than 20 euros, or about $23, for a three-course dinner with a glass of wine. Even before the gilets jaunes, or yellow-vested demonstrators, first took to the streets of the French capital last November to protest higher fuel taxes against a backdrop of declining middle-class buying power, Paris … [Read more...] about Three Courses, 20 Euros: The Affordable Dining Renaissance in Paris

Hi Meredith,I have been lucky enough to fall in love with an incredible woman. She is affectionate, sweet to me, and keeps me interested. The only problem I’m having is she has a very large number of ex-lovers, many of whom are still part of her friend group. At first I didn’t think this would affect me, but as time has gone by, I have felt more uncomfortable with the situation.I really love this girl, but the number of people she has slept with and the close proximity of many of them has been difficult to deal with.

By David McAninch The New York Times Fri., Nov. 9, 2018 Not long ago, I spent a week walking around Paris. Before you yawn jadedly, let me clarify: I walked all the way around Paris. I began each day by donning a pair of beat-up Sauconys, consuming a prodigious breakfast at my hotel near the Porte Dorée, tucking a notebook and pen into my pocket, and proceeding on foot in a counterclockwise direction along the perimeter of the oval-shaped metropolis. I did not visit the Latin Quarter, the Marais, or Montparnasse. I skipped the Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay and the Eiffel Tower. I neglected to slurp oysters at Le Procope, eat ice cream at Berthillon, or stroll along the banks of the Seine — although I crossed the oxbowed river several times along un-famous bridges.
