This Sunday we're in Étretat, not Paris, in honor of Guy de Maupassant's birthday. He was actually born near Dieppe - another town on the northern coast - but here in Étretat at the age of 18 he saved the poet Swinburne from drowning. Étretat, about 2 1/2 hours northwest of Paris by car, is one of my favorite places in Normandy.
