As I spent time in the US, I've realized most Americans wished they were somewhere else, based on the amount of articles, magazine covers and special TV broadcasts... In fact, they all want to be in London to witness first hand Catherine's and William's wedding. I do not remember such a...

Our concerns over Greece's debt are left for some other time... All girls here look like Kate Moss at her best, with the right looks and the artfully untidy hair. The men, tanned and handsome. I was sad to read about the death of Lucien Freud on the plane. I had the privilege of meeting him...

The truth is that New York in June, under a radiant sun and a pre-summer atmosphere, full of tourists, is better than ever. And there's so much to do... For example, sales-shopping (40% off almost everywhere) and witnessing the twice-a-year show (in June and December) held at the shoes...
