Playing Tourist

In the heart of the city

View from the Mount Valerian of the surroundings city of Rueil-Malmaison

Here, in the  little city of Rueil Malmaison, a mere 10 miles away from Paris, I feel I as if I had the best of both worlds. The calm and the serenity of a beautiful small country town coupled with the bustling of a bigger center. To top it all of, the weather has been on my side and I am enjoying the warmth and the light of a gorgeous beginning of July.

Ici, dans la petite ville de Rueil-Malmaison, à seulement 10 miles de Paris, j’ai l’impression d’avoir le meilleur des deux mondes. Le calme et la sérénité d’une petite ville de campagne jumellée avec l’effervescence d’un centre urbain plus grand. Pour couronner le tout, la météo a été de mon côté et je suis en train d’apprécier la chaleur et la lumière d’un magnifique début de Juillet.

Mornings spent walking around the cobbled stones streets, enjoying the company of my brother and my sister-in-law talking of nothings and sometimes also emptying our hearts of the overflow of pain we all suffered recently. In short this is exactly what the doctor ordered. Quiet evenings talking some more and eating home-made French food simple yet delicious.

How could I ask for more?

 Matinées passées à marcher dans les rues pavéesjouissant de la compagnie de mon frère et de ma belle-sœur, nous parlons de rien mais parfois aussi des choses qui nous remplissaient le cœur de douleur dues à la perte que nous avons tous subie récemment. En bref c’est exactement ce que le médecin a ordonné. Soirées tranquilles passées  à manger des mets simples et cependant délicieux et à parler un peu plus.
Que demander de plus…

p.s: I want to share my photos with you here and I am still struggling with learning how to transfer them from my memory card onto my tablet.
I might eventually even decide to capture the memories I want to share here with my tablet…
So please be forgiving with the photos you see…
