2014, April, bad taste in my mouth, beautiful walk up the 140 stairs of the Abbesses Metro, Gare de l'Est, Gare du Nord, got a sick feeling, high speed train from London, how could I leave my wife, I did not like this scenario, Jardin Villemin, Paris, Saint-Martin Canal, stairs are also in the Amelie movie, tenth arrondissement
Today was the day I had to say goodbye to my wife Lois! Her visit to Paris was over and she had to return to home and work. Leaving her at CDG was an awful feeling. I took the train from the airport back into Paris and was going to get off at Gare du Nord and check out the tenth arrondissement. As the train left CDG I really got a sick feeling, how could I leave my wife and let her fly home without me, I did not like this scenario that was planned many months ago! As the train moved into the city my thoughts fought off the bad taste in my mouth and I started thinking about the week ahead, alone in Paris and work to do!
