I walked all over the Latin Quarter, the 5th and 6th arrondissement on Monday, April 18th and snapped more than 200 photographs. Though they have been cropped, none have been altered. Here, then, is a photo diary of my day. I think it shows why I intend to return to this magical city.

There’s something about Paris that generates affection and positive feelings from residents and travelers alike.
Last night after the workshop, a group of us went out for drinks. I enjoyed meeting the variety of writers — Canadians, Scots, British, English-speaking Europeans and Americans.
I had an opportunity to chat with many of them, including a Londoner who has lived in Paris for 15 years. I asked, “So you’re settled here?”
He sighed and looked away. “This is the only place in the world… this is where I’m staying for the rest of my life.” He sounded like someone in love.
