Today is Thursday October 5th, 2017.

Last night brought an opportunity to catch-up with a colleague who manages a region of Solutions Architects at MongoDB at an amazing restaurant – Livio, à Neuilly-sur-Seine.

Livio gained unfortunate attention after the tragic terror attack in November 2015, when the owner/proprietor Stephane Albertini, and the head Chef Pierre Innocenti lost their lives.

The food was incredible and the conversation even better… great time.

A last minute deliverable for a very important client meeting has cut the available time for this update short… hope to create a more interesting update for tomorrow, my last day in Paris.
