back from Paris  
Paris was great. I ate frog legs, shopped at Shakespeare and Company, went to the top of the Eiffel Tower, saw the Moulin Rouge and Pigale, looked at groovy art at the Pompideau, and all sorts of good stuff. Probably my single favorite activity was renting a little wooden sailboat ("The Do is a fine ship and fast," the English girl who took my money said, as she handed it over) and pushing it around the fountain in the Luxembourg Gardens (an absolutely beautiful park) with the rest of the kids. It was the most relaxing hour I think I've ever spent.

And I discovered a great beer, that just screamed Ass Monkey. It's called L'Alsacienne San Cullottes, which I think roughly translates as The Alsatian Girl with No Underpants....

They still had boats at the Luxembourg Gardens? Usually they take them away for winter... Glad you had a good time!

Now that's MY kinda beer! Book seems to have interesting connotations, too.
