This is the "balcon" of our future apartment near the Place d'Italie in Paris, France. What better place, conflation of all things French and Italian, with Chinatown nearby with its bubble tea joints and cheap Vietnamese eats? Not only that, the apartment faces southwest. This marvel bears repeating. IT FACES SOUTHWEST. Avenue de Choisy. Even the name sounds charming.
There's a lot of work to be done before we can sigh and collapse contentedly onto the tiny little couch in the tiny living room.
All the same, feel free to come on over for a cup o' coffee. Or a glass of wine, depending on the hour. We'll be here anytime from early September to late June, ready to pour.
