Despite my announced obsession with French foods and architecture, the real reason I am in Paris is business. Not a bad thing when you consider the scenery we stumble upon on the way to business meetings! The Eiffel Tower always makes me gawk, even though I come to Paris often. I’ve thus often walked into a pole or nearly knocked over a little lady because I was admiring the Tour Eiffel rather than watching my way. Anyways, my business partners are two French scientists. I found out yesterday that one of them invented – inter alia – the process whereby BT (Bacillus Thuringiensis) becomes an environmentally friendly, biological pesticide. Rather impressive, wouldn’t you say?
