A KU alumus hosted us for dinner at his place, cooked by his French wife. It was absolutely delicious and I felt very much the same as a duck being prepared for foie gras. The same night as the dinner party was also the Fête des Vendanges, the festival in Montmarte to signal the start of the wine harvest. We watched an incredible fireworks display from the top of a building next to our hosts apartment. Made the city feel more magical again, after a tough 2 weeks straight of work.
