It has been a long time we were exchanging e-mails and phone calls with Ritu, but could not meet her in-person. She is a friend of Akiko's Paris friend. A long chain; but a start to make social contacts in new place. I am personally not that social to make friends at party or other social gatherings that is one reason holding me to join local Expats club.Ritu arranged a great picnic and was very nice to meet all other expaticians. It was great day and we had lots of food and fun. It was a very beautiful park in 19th arrondisement infact, place for newly wedded couples to take their wedding pictures.

After figuring out, lots of museum have free entry on first Sunday of every month we started with our museum tour with Louvre. Oh!! It is a museum in itself. I am sure all of you know some thing or other about it. We started our tour with Egyptian section last month. We are still visiting & we think we only covered 1/3rd so far after two Sundays. God knows how many sundays it will take to complete this whole museum.Some times it felt like how these people stole so much from Egypt. But again these practices were quite common in India with all the invaders from Persia to London. Any way the stronger ones are stealing oils and other resources from another country now.....
