Courage, Richard! You'll do fine!


Touch base after your cleanse and I'll meet you for some Speculoos


Good choice for a last dessert!


Good luck on the cleanse!!!! No more desserts of the week for awhile.

Sweet Freak

my new york friend, i will have to walk over to university place and try this flavor combo in your honor! (and, don't worry, the cleanse as you're describing it is easier than you think...)

Perfect choice right before a cleanse! And for your cleanse - just think how amazing your going to look for your portrait shoot when I get back from St Tropez!! Get Ready ( :


Good Luck, let all of us know how you are feeling during these days.


Good luck, Richard! Try thinking about Monday to Monday instead of 3 weeks.

Really enjoy your posts!


Good luck!!

I did have this very expensive gelato on university place…..SO good.

You can DO IT!!!

Keep yourself real busy.


It sure looked like a good choice for your last dessert. I hope this goes well for you and you don't shed too many tears over the next couple of weeks.


Good Luck - I know you can do it! The first few days will be hard and then afterwards won't be so bad!


This is definitely my preferred ice cream place in Paris and we have spent many a very long moment in their 'shops' - they do an exquisite espresso too, the vendors are without fail always very polite, even friendly, well informed and the portions are not only lovingly presented but I find them rather generous!
So, you did well to go there for your last scoop for a loooong time! You'll survive, Richard, but honestly, you ARE a bit crazy to do that to you staying in Paris! :)
