Weekend Links: Week 16

I hope everyone had a nice week. I’m looking forward to spending lots of time outside and I think I’m finally going to plant all of my window boxes…thrilling, I know, but I can’t wait. There are lots of interesting articles in Weekend Links Week 16. Some of my personal favorites are a list of nine ways to avoid looking like a tourist in France that’s pretty spot on, a long but interesting read on the rise of French tacos, a piece on little Tuscany in the heart of Paris (with beautiful photographs), and a look inside Jacques Pépin and Julia Child’s friendship. I hope you enjoy!
