    Many thanks for featuring my post about the pickpockets on the metro. It’s always good for visitors and residents to remember that Paris is a large city where it’s best to take certain precautions while enjoying the beautiful sites.

    As we didn’t have the opportunity to talk during the bloggers’ get-together in the Marais the other night, I enjoyed reading your profile and getting to know more about you. I look forward to trying your restaurant recommendations!

    Thanks again for linking to my blog!
