Four persons joined me yesterday for our walk around the Luxembourg Garden. Founded four hundred years ago by Queen Marie de Médicis, the garden is one of the loveliest in Paris. For me, it is a delight to return to it again and again.

Hanna Gressler, on the left, is summer intern for the Wells International Foundation. The Andrews family hails from Philadelphia.

A good time was had by all!

On Saturday, Samantha John (pictured front and center) and her #Thisis40Paris crew ventured out with our own Monique Y. Wells to take our #JosephineBaker Tour in Le Vésinet. The day started out cool and cloudy, but by the time they emerged from the metro and the RER, they had brilliant sunshine.

A good time was had by all!
