Cable Cars and Coffee

So this is how it goes, I think. You struggle into work, bleary-eyed and nothing but a full day of work staring you hard in the face. You check your e-mail accordingly ("No thanks," "Not him/her again!," "I'm saving that one...."), and then you think, "What's that GuyinTheWorld guy up to?" Well, maybe you don't, but now you have.

You sip your coffee, you go somewhere, and then you're back at work. Just like that.

Last week, Paris. This week, you're standing, precariously clinging to the rail of a San Francisco cable on the Powell/Market line through the city to Fisherman's Wharf, and you're thinking, "That just saved me five bucks." Actually, you're thinking, "I'd so rather be there. With that guy."

Enjoy your coffee, astronauts.

Two Days in Paris, 2009

There were a lot of reasons why this video never got posted last year. Suffice to say c'├ętait alors, ceci est maintenant, and things are a little bit better now. So, before my world collapsed, I spent two days in Paris, looking at this and looking at that. It was only two days, and then somehow I had to make my way to Perugia, Italy, before heading back to France again. I'll tell the long version of the story here someday, but not now.

Meanwhile, enjoy your coffee, avoid the boss, and meet me in Paris.
