Despite the loss to Italy today in the World Cup Final, France is still a favorite of many...particularly Richard Nahem, now based in Paris. He is writing a book about his experience as an American expatriot in the city, dubbed, I Prefer Paris. As a companion piece, he has also just launched a blog, appropriately titled, "I Prefer Paris" (doesn't everyone?). In an email to friends and acquaintances, he promises, "Hilarious stories, perfect weather, great food and wine, interesting company, a first-class view, and lots of fun."
