My week in Europe couldn’t have gone by any faster. Here’s some snapshots of my adventures in Paris this past week:

I miss Sophia so much! It was so good to see her for a little over 24 hours in Paris. I took the train from London to visit her for a night. My family also lives in Paris so we got to stay with them. For those of you who don’t know her, she’s my best friend who is in Dijon teaching English for a year. You can follow her adventures through her Tumblr, Vie en Rose

A London post is in order.

This reminded me so much of my childhood home when my backyard was my dwelling area. I’d climb the tree, spend hours in my treehouse, pick hibiscus flowers and put them in my hair, catch “rollie pollies”, and create sculptures in my sandbox.

You can also write a virtual postcard for whoever looks up the same address in future. See for yourself:

I have definitely been swooning over his work recently:

Photo op: Moscow’s Heat wave

August 10, 2010

Such an ominous picture and unfortunate circumstance. Death polls are up to 700 people a day with Moscow’s heatwave. Regardless of Russia’s population, that is a dangerously high number.

“Our ancestors haven’t observed or registered a heat like that within 1,000 years,” Frolov said at a news conference. “This phenomenon is absolutely unique.”
