Geometry

FRANCE. Paris. 2014.

Fourth day in Paris = about time I put up a post! I’ve been experimenting with geometry lately, so no real spur-of-the-moment or movement-oriented shots here. The place I’m staying is around 20 minutes by public transport to where I have class, but day two onward I’ve taken to walking instead (it’s a nice distance and not at all too complicated). In general Paris seems pretty navigable on foot. And thanks to the secondhand compact camera I managed to pick up just before I left, I’m no longer lugging around a heavy SLR on lighter walks. Photos 1, 3, 4, and 6 were taken with the compact.

Upon arrival I’ve adjusted into an unfortunate sleep schedule due to a few impending deadlines, but otherwise, all is good. The only problem I have thus far is that the grocery store and bakery are a 15-minute walk from the dorms, and in the time it takes me to get back I manage to nibble through half of my baguette. In general life I’m getting by in everyday interactions with the abysmal French I have; in terms of coursework, the shift from philosophy to a more facts-based history has been an interesting one. But above all I appreciate that I don’t feel harried here. It’s okay to take my time (as long as I’m respectful of yours), chill a little, sit on the banks of the Seine without feeling as if I should always be on the move. A nice break from what’s been the most hectic six months in a long, long time. Life is interesting again, so I guess I’m settling in.

      1. Japan is DEATH ZONE of the earth! Everyone understands this. Even many expatriates in Japan fleed just after Fukushima.. Now in japan many breast feeding mothers have radioactive breast milk plus thousands of little? children tested their urine has raiitactdvioy. So why visit Japan?!. . The radioactive stuff is still going on…and Ceisum was found all overtheir land, and radioactive substance was found in rice, water etc.. Japan is basically going over

      2. / This design is incredible! You certainly know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
