On Paris in June, Le Cordon Bleu, Neha's graduation and starting a new Blog

There's a reason why you can’t escape the hordes of tourists surrounding the Eiffel Tower. Not only is it one of France’s most popular tourist destinations, but according to data from the World Bank, France is the world’s most visited country. So on this trip to France, we decided that we would see and do everything that we hadn't done on earlier trips and try and leave out the Eiffel Tower. But of course that just isn't possible and on Friday, we found ourselves right back there.

Everything was just as beautiful as before but the number of tourists was actually quite staggering! Add to that the fact that the Eiffel Tower is adding a first floor where tourists will be able to stop, rest, look around and enjoy some fabulous treats and you have a recipe for some of the most delicious possibilities this summer.

On this trip we had the proud privilege of watching our daughter Neha graduate from the world renowned Le Cordon Bleu, Paris with a Deplome De Patisserie on June 6, a glorious afternoon at a beautiful and touching ceremony held at the Westin Hotel, Vendome.
