And I'd love to tell you all about my foibles with French bureaucracy and my flâneur adventures around Paris — however I currently have a virus on my computer which is defying eradication and threatens to take over my whole life. I've already taken it back to the shop twice to have everything wiped clean and the operating system reinstalled, but to no avail – the virus remains. Not being very technically inclined, I'm not sure how this is possible, but nevertheless.
So for the foreseeable future I am relegated to internet cafés and their incredibly annoying French keyboard layouts.
More as the situation unfolds. In the meantime, just keep watching that M.I.A. video — it's amazing! I'm mesmerised.
