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.

Wow, you did fantastic! And congrats on the Bingo as well. By the way, not sure what you meant about the links. This is my blog, so I'm the one who collected, copied and pasted the links by theme. I also shared a lot through social media. Lots of fun Emma @ Words And Peace

Thank you Emma. Sorry for late reply, but life has been busy. I am lost about the links, but maybe I left some kind of comment on your post? It was a great Bingo though, loved it.
