France is known for having beautiful parks and gardens. At the Meudon Observatory Park, I got to see artfully trimmed trees, manicured lawns, as well as a splendid view of the Paris skyline.
Autumn is my favorite season, but I'm still hanging on to those dog days of summer - like the time my family and I went to Lavender Days in Fairfield.
I spent the summer of 1995 on an international volunteer project in Hérisson, a tiny village in central France. Our group’s goal was to spruce up the town's medieval castle.
