Surrounded by the many music and instrument shops of South Pigalle, and facing onto a sunny square, Kooka Boora is a bustling café serving excellent espresso drinks, filter coffee, fresh-pressed juices, teas, and snacks.
It’s another in the recent spate of Australian coffee shops in the city. Always crowded, the free wifi and trendy location join for outstanding combined work-doing and people-watching.

This week, a small group of us gathered at Dans les Landes to celebrate our friend Brad’s birthday.
It turned out to be an excellent choice; a Spanish/French tapas restaurant, Dans les Landes serves lots of shareable, creative small plates. Truffle risotto served in beef bones! Smoked duck and foie gras salad made into maki-like lettuce rolls! Mushroom “cappuccino” soup! Nothing pretentious, just good food and a convivial atmosphere.
Happy birthday, Bradley!

And now I’m in Nice, writing from an American-style diner. I got here on Tuesday and the whole week has been a blur of trying to figure out the apartment and the town and realizing more and more that I’m irrevocably addicted to the internet.

This week, one of my best friends came to visit the city. I got to walk him around and do all the fun touristy things I never think of doing on normal days.
