Julie and I have missed the last metro. "We can go to my aunt's place" I say. "It's just around the corner." Julie is incredulous: "In the 9th arrondissement (subdivison)?" I say wait until you see it. My two aunts are nuns. They are short and stocky. They inherited the luxurious condo from an elderly gentleman they cared for. The apartment has furniture piled up to the ceiling. There is only a narrow passageway in each room. "This is like a horror movie" Julie whispers to me as one of nuns is holding her in her arm and petting her.
