I went to C. Cafe in the 11th arrondissement. My neice's boyfriend is opening this club in a month and this was the preview party. I met a lot of their friends that I had heard about, but never met and everyone was wonderful. I even got to dance an Arab dance (with a little guidance), hands in the air, hips swaying...which is a rare find in Santa Barbara. The group I was with included a Russian, a girl from Martinique, a German, a Lebanese guy born in NY, and a bunch of Frenchies. The city is still alive with sounds of happy Parisiens and I am off to get the stench of smoke out of my hair.
I wish you all a very happy new year full of champagne and fabulous company.
