Paris Goes to Sleep

I had hard time choosing just one photo from tonight’s walk around the Île Saint-Louis, so here you have three. The sky was deep blue and streets very quiet, but temperature was quite cool. Summer, we are waiting for you! Paris at nightParis and Notre Dame at nightParis and Notre Dame at nightParis goes to sleep now, but keep checking this blog, Pearlspotting (Facebook) and  (Twitter)! Interesting new restaurant reviews and more stories about Finland to come… and of course more of India, too!!

      Let’s hope it happens here too! And preferably soon!

      This spring has been very strange: in March I was sun bathing.. but since then there have only been occasional random days of maximum 27C (80F) and otherwise 10-15C! But one year ago it was the same.

      How hot does it get where you live? Is it humid or dry? Do you live in an area with many native Finns? (I think Michigan is one of the states they immigrated to in the 19th century)

        Michigan summers are typically hot and humid, particularly in August, when temps are often in the 90s F.

        West Michigan, where I live, was mostly settled by Germans and Dutch. There’s a large settlement of Finnish people in the upper peninsula of Michigan. Of course, Eero Saarinen grew up in Michigan!

        Of course he did! Today I have been writing about Finnish art (including design & architecture) so I should have remembered Saarinen’s connection with Michigan 🙂

    Hey thanks for visiting our blog! My girlfriend and I are actually going to Paris in a couple of weeks. Do you have any recommendations for places to eat?

      Oh, my favorite subject, where to eat in Paris 🙂 !!

      What kind of food are you interested in? What price category? In which part of Paris will you be staying (this may determine a little bit where you dine…)?

      Would you like to do this: send me your email address either by responding to this message or as a private message via Pearlspotting facebook page? I can send you a list of places I like to go to. Ok?
