Happy Thanksgiving to all of my American friends and family!

Today is just another Thursday here. It's a regular working day and most French people don't even realize that it's a big holiday in the U.S.

I'm not doing much today. I've made a few new American friends here, but these friendships are very recent, and I don't know of anyone nearby who will be celebrating Thanksgiving with a big turkey dinner.

I've decided to have my own Thanksgiving dinner. I bought a roast chicken and intend to mash some potatoes. I was about to write how I've never seen cranberries or sweet potatoes here, when, lo and behold, my local vegetable market had some for sale - just for today. No pumpkin pie though.

I have many things to be thankful for. It has been a wonderful year of discovery for me, and even though I'm alone today and thinking of my friends and family home in Denver/Boulder, I am healthy and content.

Enjoy the day. And enjoy each other!

Love from Paris,
