Paris

Iíve been in Paris for a couple of days at the Wine Evolution conference, where yesterday I spoke at both afternoon sessions, one of logistics, the other on closures. The real value of these events, however, is not information, but the people you meet. I guess thatís why business people still rack up the airmiles in this information age, when there are other much cheaper and simpler ways of corresponding: nothing beats a face to face meeting. Today Iím a free agent and itís a great opportunity to hunt down interesting wines in Paris, as well as just walking the streets and seeing some famous sights. Pictured is the view from my hotel window (33rd floor), the tones warmed by the early morning sunshine.

Jamie, whereabouts was your hotel? I lived in Paris for many years and can't place the view.. looks like La Defense in the background but the foreground is unfamiliar.

It was Concorde Lafayette, near the Arc de Triomphe http://www.concorde-lafayette.com/index2.htm

Had I been on the other side the view would have been a little more spectacular
