Un fois de plus: la tour Eiffel

Nope, we’re not quite done with la Tour yet – but I’ll spare you the obligatory silly photos where people pretend to be holding the tower up or to push it over or … and yes, I did buy one of those shiny little Eiffel Towers. Eiffel Towers and outstanding pastries and overpriced below average food eaten in locations with advantageous views. And ├ęglises and bridges and le M├ętro and boulevards and tourists and beaches on streets and … that’s (my experience of) Paris.

Other than that, I’m writing and reading, excited about the books my students are picking for their projects (and hoping they are having a good time reading) and why is there no summer? Also, yes, behind with emails. Tomorrow. Also, tomorrow I’m going to the local government office to get a certificate of good conduct. (Yes, yes, also more prosaically a Police Clearance Certificate, but the certificate of good conduct sounds much more mysterious and bizarre, no? I mean, what did I conduct well? I’m no conductor!).
