About Me: La Brunette
My name is Sara. I grew up in Southern California, moved to San Francisco for college and haven’t managed to stay in one place for more than a few years since. I started this blog from a tiny apartment in Paris’ 11e arrondissement and now write from Washington, DC. It started out as a way to reach out to far-away family and friends — including my adorable grandmother who, without a computer, reads this blog in hard copy installments delivered by my parents. And, it just never stopped. I write about the people, places, and things I like, usually involving travel, food, cycling and quirky little corners of my favorite cities.
What kind of bike do you ride?
I was once the owner of a much-loved, blue Phoenix roadster (or, at least parts of it were), which I had to leave behind in Beijing. I don’t have a bike of my own at the moment, but I’m an avid public bikeshare user.
Why all the French?
As a French-American, French language and culture have always been a big part of my life, and so a big part of this blog too.
Odds & Ends
I love hearing from you in the comments, so please don’t hesitate to drop me a line. Most importantly, thank you, reader, for indulging me in this little project.
Thanks for stopping by,
