Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Yup, agreed, but I may have to head back down to Marseille at some point on Sunday because it looks like I'm flying out of marignane on Monday. So, Saturday stuff is best in my book.

It looks like Helen is driving InWales and me into Paris on Saturday evening and we're leaving early on Monday morning. It would be great if we could arrange for Saturday dinner somewhere.

As soon as I have my travel plans finalized...you'll have to decide what you want to eat. I'll probably be staying in the 8th near Clichy, there's a real good Moroccan restuarant just off the Batignoles square that I've been craving for about a year...

ETA in Paris is before 7:00. I think it would be unrealistic for anything to happen much before 9:00 due to getting organised. I'm likely to be in a hotel in the 13th and will have to crosstown. I believe Mig and InWales will be better placed so I may have to see you after you've started.

I'm no fan of falafel, but step away from the hummous.

It's moroccan: probably more likely to have cous-cous.

I haven't had moroccan since 1998 in Lisbon, I think.

No worries, any cuisine with lamb in it will find favour with me.

Keep me updated with what's happening please, like where the restaurant is cos, as I say, I'll probably be late.

If you guys are going to be in the 13th, I can be in the 13th too, just off Vincennes metro Porte Doree. That's one of my options for staying in Paris anyhow.

If metro Raspail (14th) is closer, that's the other.

Vincennes and Porte Dorée sound like the 12th, not 13th...

To go to the 13th it is better to be in Raspail, though, as it is on line 6 with crosses the arrondissement. and you get vastly better metro access to the rest of Paris ...
