When Kees worked in an international job
before the cup tribe members were born,
we often travelled together.
He at work, the lady in town.
It was so romantic!
I couldn't help feeling a bit like a lady as seen in American movies,
traveling along with your busy, business husband.
I love to explore cities by myself.
We went Paris a lot.
Me in my best outfit,
pretending to live there (Don't say a single word!)
wondering off to the best patisseries,
the best bakers and the biggest épiceries.
I know for sure, i still have a lot to look for,
when I go back,
but the memories still make me smile.
I will never forget when I had breakfast at Fauchon's
and had the most lovely Madeleines I'd ever tasted.
Poor me, they ran out of diamonds ;-)
