February 2014 - Paris Panorama
Welcome to our new newsletter!
After thirteen years of writing about history, culture, and contemporary life in the City of Light, we ceased publication of the Paris Insights newsletter at the end of 2013.
We call our new newsletter Paris Panorama. Each month it will feature a photograph by Eric Hian-Cheong and an inspiring haiku poem by Anna Eklund-Cheong.
You will also find information about what’s up in Paris, a photograph with a link to a review of our restaurant of the month (sign in to read the review), and a fun fact about the City of Light.
And so, we begin. Bonne lecture!
