By now I’m sure you’ve heard that Paris and other regions in France are in a modified third lockdown. There are a few articles detailing exactly what that implies. My favorites from Weekend Links Week Twelve include why Paris is the best place in the world to go to the movies, photos of a Loire Valley “fixer upper,” and candy bar ads that show you what doesn’t make it onto the packaging. I hope you enjoy!
