Paris Through Expatriate Eyes
If your idea of an ideal day is whiling it away in a Left Bank wine bar or literary salon, Pittsburgh native and sometime-local resident Terrance Gelenter has an eclectic mix of tours led by people like author, film historian, and raconteur John Baxter. Themes include “Paris When It Sizzled: Montparnasse and the Café Years,” with stops at La Coupole (the former haunt of Man Ray and Dalí) and the Dingo Bar (where F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway first met). A bon vivant himself, Gelenter hosts literary salons along with guest stars such as authors Diane Johnson, Pete Hamill, and Peter Mayle. It’s a laid-back, sociable way to feel like a real expat.
