Parisian frog’s legs and street puppies

August/September 2012 Yesterday I ate frog's legs. Poor little amputee frogs are now wheeling around Paris bumping over cobblestones because I'm a greedy guts. While I chomped happily on the fat thighs of Mr Frog and Co after sourcing a great place in the Latin Quarter for the best frogs legs (Le Bourbon), I also discovered they had Fondue. Man alive what is better than melted cheese on French bread? The answer is BUTTER on melted cheese with French bread!!!!
Considering Paris has a squillion more people than Australia, it's amazing how well kept the City is. I have walked far, deep into Arrondissements and non tourist areas. It's hard to believe it has only been a week. I already know many of the street people by sight as I travel around - 'Man with cane', 'Old lady with cat in harness', 'Very old bent over man with TWO cases!', 'Man with dog who had puppies five weeks ago (the dog, not the man)' - Oh I wanted one of these squirming, licky puppies!
The best thing about living in Paris for five weeks is that I'm not rushing around to monuments and museums.  I have time to see these things.  Every day is full of everyday life.

I withdrew from my Masters (Neuropsychology) to write a blog instead, and to teach English as a second language. Life is too short to be doing something you want to retire from at 65! I now live in Paris, France.
