I've moved to Washington, DC, so the profile now reflects that. I'm starting a blog over there, but still am able to entertain any questions about Paris and Sciences Po. Bon chance to all!

Dear Paris, merci pour tout

On my last day in Paris and she gave me a beautiful rainbow.

PS. I will be keeping the Oui 2 Paris blog for a while as I have much to post of photos and stories and reviews (bagel-tasting around town, trip to Versailles, street art, visits to lesser known museums, etc..)

A visit to Victor Hugo

Victor-Marie Hugo was a French poet, playwright, novelist, essayist, visual artist, statesman, human rights activist and exponent of the Romantic movement in France.

In France, Hugo's literary fame comes first from his poetry but also rests upon his novels and his dramatic achievements. Among many volumes of poetry, Les Contemplations and La Légende des siècles stand particularly high in critical esteem, and Hugo is sometimes identified as the greatest French poet. Outside France, his best-known works are the novels Les Misérables and Notre-Dame de Paris (known in English also as The Hunchback of Notre Dame).

Though a committed conservative royalist when he was young, Hugo grew more liberal as the decades passed; he became a passionate supporter of republicanism, and his work touches upon most of the political and social issues and artistic trends of his time. He is buried in the Panthéon.

The City of Paris has preserved his residence at 6 Place des Vosges as a museum.
