  2. Hi, I love your website. We lived in Japan for 10 years, so I know the expat spirit. You are living your dream! Lucky you! I am bringing my 13 year old daughter to Paris for the first time. I know Paris well, but have not been for years. My daughter is a big foodie (esp. pastry). Would you be available or interested to take us on a foodie tour of Paris one morning?

  5. Cindy,

    Just a shot in the dark, and I love your recommendations for places in Taipei. What are your recommendations for a nice brunch in NYC. Having a hard time finding venu for party of 10 for my mom’s 70th birthday. Greenwich Project, Louro, ABC Kitchen all booked up.

    Thanks so much!
