Like Politico, this blog is “gone to the convention” and will also return September 10! I’m looking forward to discovering two new American cities: Tampa, Florida and Charlotte, North Carolina and hearing both presidential candidates, Mitt Romney for the Republicans and Barrack Obama for the Democrats officially accept the nomination for their respective parties. I’ve already voted back in May, in the French presidential elections and I won’t get to cast a ballot in November (and if I did, it wouldn’t matter anyway since I live in DC…). So I’m really here as an observer and I’m thrilled to be able to attend both conventions this year!
I’ll try to update this blog as much as I can, whether it’s to bring you my French point of view on this very American political event or to let you know if I find a decent spot to have a macaron in Tampa and Charlotte 😉
