My dear friend Eila Conte treated us to a four hour lunch on our last day in Paris. Wow. She is now retired and her husband Gerard passed away about five years ago.

Other than that, it felt like yesterday when we last met. Don't you just love it - having a friend from thirty years ago that you can just pick up chatting with like nothing has passed? And Eila's energy, broad interests and positivity are a true delight. We love you Eila!

Merci énormément.
