Greetings City Tech,
It is Monday morning. We have been here a good week and it feels like, well…….an immense amount of time. Every image is new to us and full of information. Absorbing the culture, the sounds of the language, the aromas and flavors of the foods. My goodness, it is a week filling the senses. There are few moments that go unnoticed and the sun is bright until the night, our explorations just keep on going. We are smiling still.
I am posting some images for you to see. Enjoy. Prof. Hoffman

Artisanal Cat Treats
A café with cats. There are now 2 in Paris. You can have lunch, tea or dinner with a cat on your lap.
A few of us sampled some of the vegan “cheese” cakes and ice “creams” from Vegan Folie’s in the 5th. The ice creams are cashew milk based with agave syrup and nice flavors. The cheesecakes came in 3 flavors, lemon, caramel and orange blossom. They are tofu based and were a very nice rendition but we preferred the products from the art of Vegetarian class at Tech better. We will keep exploring.
I arrived. What a wonderful flight on Air France! They have an amazing business and very savvy! I finally slept a few hours after a busy end of the semester. Greatly needed!!
The Hotel is waiting for our group with excitement. Estelle, the GM is so happy to greet us once again. Mayra Bello arrived today and we took a walk to the Malakoff Marche to buy fruit and take in the local activities. There was a vender selling nougat from Provence. He gave us a taste of a wonderful honey and pistachio nougat. Wonderful! I bought a Pate de Bourgogne, ahead cheese topped with parsley, as well as a petite quiche Lorraine. Both for dinner.
The French Open has a match today which I plan to watch from the big screen at the Hotel de Ville in center city. It is a Hot day today, 35 degrees Celsius. No rain for the moment. Sunshine and humid.
The photo is from Luxembourg Gardens.
I look forward to meeting up with Professor Lorenzini and the whole group on Saturday at CDG.
The hospitality management students are getting ready for Paris!!! This week we will host a language and culture immersion with Prof. Damien Duchamp.
These are some shots from past years and we are ready to post some new ones.
