My name is Sara Somers. I live in Paris. In a beautiful apartment that overlooks the river Seine and the Pont Neuf. I am retired, used to live in Oakland, California and moved to Paris two and half years ago. I walk everywhere and see a lot of everyday parisian life. I go to movies, volunteer at the American Library in Paris and write. I find it hard to be in this city without expressing the wonder that I feel most of the time. These are my thoughts.
