Shelter in Paris

Can’t get health insurance, can’t get car financing, 524,000 jobs lost last month in the US… our first week living in America has been tough! All I want to do is escape to Paris and stay here:

Mama Shelter: a new, affordable, boutique hotel in Paris’s chic 20th arrondissement designed by Phillipe Starck. Instead of the typical hotel TV, each room comes equipped with a 24 inch iMac. Talk about a new generation of hotels! My friend Jules wants to go to have a gin and tonic here…I’m not sure which bar we’d prefer to drink in:

Island Bar:

“An Island bar for ladies and gentleman longing for a more fused world with the help of concoctions prepared by our team of bartenders.”

Chic Chic Bar:

“A chichi, thoughtful bar, perfect for lovers of deep, melancholic conversations.”

I thought those descriptions were hilarious, one of the creators of Mama Shelter is French philosopher, Cyril Aouizerate.
