Paris with Olivier in 2022 (more information)
Just returned from Paris after a 2 year absence due to the pandemic. Life over there is pretty much back to normal. Masks are still worn indoors, but otherwise most restrictions have disappeared. The infection rate is low. I felt pretty safe. I plan on traveling back to Paris in December. If all goes well, the trip we initially scheduled for May 2020 will hopefully take place in early June 2022. Stay tuned...
