Paris in July 2023 - wrap up

Paris in July is nearing its end. It has been a very active month from so many participants. Thank you Emma @ Word and Peace for taking over after Tamara @ Thyme for Tea and hosting this year. Thank you also to Deb Nance @ Readerbuzz for collecting all the links to the many posts. I still have to catch up on reading some of them. It has been a busy month with a lot of activities from Emma's side. Here a wrap-up of what I did this month.


Reading

I did not write a post about the Hugo and Verne novels. Both classics and as such still vital today. I was much impressed by Jules Verne's story, which can be considered as historical fiction. Showed a good knowledge of a far away country, customs and politics.


Other activites

Bingo


With a little bit of goodwill, I have possibly four in a vertical row.


First row - 1, 3 and 4 (1. Notre-Dame de Paris, 3. Arsène Lupin, 4. Brigitte Bardot (tv-series, but still ...)

Second row - none

Third row - 1, 2, 3 and 4 - BINGO (1. Napoleon, 2. The Courier of the Czar, 3. A play, could I choose The Hunchback of Notre Dame as a film? 4. Other: Chateau life.

Fourth row - none


My month in Paris came out more productive than I thought it would. I got to read some French classics and lingered in the modern world with Castles and Brigitte Bardot. A varied month.


I am already longing for next year and hope to see you back in Paris. I have discovered new bloggers which is always very nice. I have enjoyed your takes on anything French, being inspired to visit places, cafés, restaurants and museums next time I am in Paris.


Au revoir! À bientôt.
