Un Petit Cafe

Just a little French cafe vert, and news, to take your mind off the January blues.
I found this cafe on one of my American Writers in Paris walks
and couldn't resist snapping its sweet photo. 

On the French front:
It appears that Gerard Depardieu has received his Russian passport for tax exile
and famed French actress and animal rights activist Brigitte Bardot 
is also threatening to follow suit if Baby and Nepal,
two elephants diagnosed with tuberculosis
and soon to be put down at the
  Tete d'Or Zoo in Lyon, 
are not given reprieve 
and allowed to live.

And Russia is now happily awaiting a mass migration of wealthy Europeans. 

Somehow I always feel better after reading French news!

  1. 75% tax rate? Who can afford that? I think many French will be getting small apartments in Belgium to get lower taxes. That is what one of my friends does, that, and dual citizenships.

  2. I HEARD ABOUT M. Depardieu!!!!! BOLD MOVE! And I adore and admire Madame Bardot for her courage. The French do NOT take things lying down. VIVE LES FRANÇAIS! Anita

  3. Merci for sharing the French news! I wish we could be at that little cafe right now enjoying the afternoon ~ perfection at it's best!
    I hope your year has started off famously,
