Dear friends and family,
In Paris for the holiday season with Michael, Jill and David Wild. The Wilds had kindly invited us to join them here several times, and we finally said, Why the heck not? Are we crazy? Who wouldn't have Christmas dinner prepared by Michael Wild (owner, along with partner Larry Goldman, of BayWolf Restaurant in Oakland), if given the chance?
Staying in an apartment, which friends of Michael and Jill stay in, on the Ile Saint-Louis. If you know Paris, you know it doesn't get more central than this. It's in the middle of everything, yet very quiet.
Flew into Paris CDG, took the train in, dropped our bags at the apartment, and then went to Michael, Jill and David's super comfy apartment for a light supper. What a total pleasure to be with welcoming friends in a foreign location.
The next day, the morning of the 24th, Michael and David came by our little apartment with croissants and pastries, and we all took off for the most beautiful butchery to pick up our Xmas goose and other delights.
