No. 303: La Coupe du Monde

I loved every moment of it and liked being part of the World. Félicitations Allemagne, and I won’t cry for you, Argentina. You’ll be back. Can’t wait for 2018…

No. 276: Roland-Garros dans la Ville


I know that the French Open has come and gone, but I have to say, I certainly did love watching it with thousands of my closest friends on the Champ de Mars, when Roland-Garros came to my ville this year. It was the first French Open that I remember there being a humongous Jumbo-tron on the grounds in front of the Eiffel Tower, not to mention the serving cages where you could perfect your serve and measure your speed, and a temporary clay court perfect for volleying with friends.

The weather certainly cooperated throughout most of the Open and it was a hoot to picnic in the park and watch the drama unfold without having to pay a pretty penny. Merci bien to the City of Light for providing this excellent experience.
