NYC, the capital of plurality...

Kerry and I went in East Canal Street a few weeks ago.

They had a block party.They were celebrating a drink, a mix of vanilla ice cream and sparkling water.

But the most important part of our journey down to extreme China town(it took us a good 1h to find the place) was to our complete stupefaction a 200 years old magnificent Sepharadic Synagogue built at the end of the 18th century.Really Amazing.Both Chinese and Jewish community organized the block party.Inside the Synagogue the… Continue

Sarkozy, jogging in Central Park, petit malaise, big issue; et de rire la presse



C'est la crise. Certains craquent, sont invites a prendre leurs clics et leurs claques. D'autres claquent. Mais Charlie est la pour nous faire garder le sourire.



Pas ce Charlie,





Charlie Hebdo est un journal satirique, souvent au cœur des polémiques, et toujours salutaire pour la liberté d'expression et la démocratie.

How about a big social event with members actually meeting in person?A great Francophone opportunity...

Fabrice Jaumont had such a fantastic idea in creating this site.
It enhances the French culture and social contact in NY.
In fact, I was very enthusiastic joining this internet social club but now
it makes me want more.
How about we meet in person?!
May be a gathering, like a Francophone event.
It would be a great opportunity to meet a lot of different people, exchange ideas, and have a lot of fun...
Have a wonderful day....

Un américain, c'est écolo?

Les américains et l’écologie...et moi, et moi, et moi



Lorsqu’un américain fait ses courses, il repart avec des sacs plastiques « doublés ». What ????!



Pour la française, l’européenne dirais-je même, que je suis, cela fait partie de toutes ces petites habitudes désastreuses pour l’environnement.

Je sors fièrement mon cabas á chaque occasion et j’adore dire « No thanks, I don’t need a bag » avec une pointe de rébellion (invisible á l’œil nu) dans le regard… Continue

Amuse-Bouche No. 10: The Language of Love. Avoir le béguin is to have a crush, but je t’ai dans la peau (I’ve got you under my skin) has nothing to do with love. That’s lust.

Amuse-Bouche No. 10: The Language of Love



by Julia Frey



Avoir le béguin is to have a crush, but je t’ai dans la peau (I’ve got you under my skin) has nothing to do with love. That’s lust.





In the United States, we pull petals off daisies: “loves me, loves me not.” In France, where hairs are not split, but coupés en quatre (cut in quarters), plucking marguerites has SEVEN choices: Il m'aime, un peu, beaucoup,… Continue

Joseph Cilona, great clinical psychologist and personal coach

Joseph CilonaJoseph Cilona is the type of guy you want to know in NYC. The city is incredibly appealing for the crazy amount of stuff that goes on. It’s pure life. But NYC is also strenuous and grueling relationshipwise. Not to mention the complete absence of silence. Therefore, shrinks and offshoots are requested : having someone with who you can share your thoughts just for the sake of it, it’s priceless. And it’s exactly what Joseph does and loves doing.



Can you introduce… Continue

'"La différence cataloguée"', projet photographique de Clémence de Limburg a NY. La communauté Satmar

Juifs hassidiques ultra orthodoxes d'origine roumaine, les Satmars, parlant strictement yiddish, vivent en monde clos, leur leader ayant déclaré que le changement est l’ennemi par excellence de l’Hassidisme.

Clémence de Limburg, jeune photographe curieuse et inspirée, a pourtant… Continue

Allons Ensemble

Nous allons bientot partir passer quelques jours en Europe et je voulais savoir s'il y en avait parmi nos lecteurs & lectrices qui pouvaient me conseiller apropos des baggages. Je voyagerai avec British Airways et j'ai entendu dire qu'ils sont tres strictes avec les dimensions et le poids des baggages. Tous conseils seront beaucoup apprecies. Je prefere eviter les drames. En plus, comment fait-on pour avoir les accents dans le texte. Je n'arrive pas a en avoir.
