. I am ready to go to NY and put everything I've learned here to good use. I am finishing my new website this week and will be having another photography exhibition on May 19. I have a couple of things lined up in NY upon arrival. I will be assisting a couple of fashion photographers, working partime as a photo retoucher and freelancing for a fashion agency. My friends Matt, Vatsal and Melissa from Texas are coming to visit for a week on May 22. We go to Amsterdam on May 25 for two nights. I am definitely looking forward to seeing them and showing them around Paris. Right now Paris is warm during the days, but stills gets a little cold at night. I hope all is well and I will write back soon.
We just returned from a weekend of bliss in Cannes, France...We arrived the week before the Cannes film Festival and people were just arriving and getting everything prepared for the big week. We rented a car in Nice at the airport and drove into Cannes, it only takes about 30 minutes and it's a beautiful drive...the countryside is gorgeous. Our good friend Steve, who runs the Intercontinental Hotel in Austin, TX came to France to visit Brea and I. We all flew out together and had an amazing time and lived the good life. We stayed at the Carlton Hotel on the beach and took some day road trips through the French Riviera when we weren't lounging on the beach. We went to St Paul, Eze and Monaco. Eze was my favorite town...it has a medieval castle and church located on top of a mountain overlooking the Mediteranean Sea. It was a gorgeous view from the top. Needless to say, it was a much needed trip for us. Our schedules have been crazy lately. I finish my photography training at Speos on May 20 and then we move to NYC on June 5. I can't believe it's so close...I feel like my time in Paris has been a wonderful experience
