Sun

I'm sitting outside in the backyard right now getting some sun. Its really warm and no wind. Can't really complain except for the faint smell of cat pee, too many cats in this neighborhood! Hopefully my marble white face and chest will get some color. This is the first warm day after the last 3 days where we had colder nights which resulted in the days only reaching about 10. The thermometer is showing above 30 right now, but its in the sun so can't really trust it. To set the mood even more I'm playing some 60's rock music. Niiice. The only thing disturbing me is the train in the distance and the small private planes from the airport in Villepreux, the small village next to ours.

Yesterday me and Fabi spent in La Defense. We got there at 15 or so cause we wanted to have dinner and not sooo much shopping. I did however end up buying some basics, a new spring jacket, 2 basic t-shirts, a cardigan etc. Then we walked around some. The shopping centre, La Quatre Temps, in La Defense is really big and nice. They have a lot of stores in all price ranges. We went into H&M, Zara, GAP and some other stores, but they also have Lacoste, Tommy Hilfiger, Guess, Levis, American Apparel etc. So a wide range. They also have Zara Home, which have so many adorable items! Need to go back there!

Anyway then we went to eat, they have a lot of restaurants on the top floor, but we chose the grill restaurant Hippopotamus and had an Entree and a main. It was really good, except Im not a big fan of entrecote, so I should have chosen something else I guess.
After the meal we took the metro to the Tour Eiffel to see the light show it has every night after dark. To this we had the dessert, crepe while watching the lights in the sky. Was reallly nice!

Brrr

Terrbile weather the last few days, raining and temp around 10. Even lower at 7 today. Yesterday it was really windy as well, super cold when we went to carrefour.
Had an early seminar yesterday, 8-10, where we discussed realism and liberalism on international politics, the UN and other recent matters such as Syria and Iran. Interesting but also hard to discuss with people who didnt study peace and conflict like I did. They are all convinced that the UN is an actual functoning organization on all levels..hm.
There's too much corruption for anything to work right! I think realism and liberalism works the best together. Anyway, I promised pictures from last week when we went to the agricultural expo at Porte de Versailles, I'll post them later today I think. There's a lot of them with cute animals etc!

Wonderful weather

The last two weeks the weather have really given us a treat. It's been between 12-15 even tho most mornings have been completely cloudy (like today). But in the afternoon the sun gets out and its really lovely! No cold wind, I could even be outside without a jacket tuesday when we went to Porte de Versailles for a big agricultural expo (I have pics, but I did not transfer them to the computer yet). Next week it might get a bit colder, below 10 at least, but just for the week. I really hope spring comes fully soon. You could really get a taste of it this week. When you walked out on our street here you would see men in t-shirts washing their cars in the sun, birds singing, old ladies saying "Bonjour!" from their windows and the smell of burning wood from all houses. It is really wonderful!
