While in Paris hanging out with my friends Erik and Uri, we rented an apartment near the Bastille. It seems significant that I spent Passover, a holiday about
freedom from slavery, near the prison whose name is synonymous with
French Revolution.

people in another language. Some things, I suppose, are not intended to
translate well.]
