"like a well-oiled-machine, had a sense of purpose" is an interesting description.  

I love Paris and will share your article with my partner.  Thanks for writing.  Oh, you might want to correct your spelling of flammenkueche

I simply cannot go through and spellcheck in 4 different languages!  I'm sure it is annoying, but you know, I usually find it charming when those here who have English as a second language misspell words, like Jerome, because it is so rare, or kcurie, because he's just making up his own English as he goes along with the faith that we'll all understand.  :)

kcurie just types too damn fast for his own good :-)

I recall you speaking English at the speed of a machine gun in Prague -- kcurie must be even faster...

No, I'm the faster speaker.

Well, you know, a lot of things can be said about Hausmann. This one is not surprising.
