Vincennes, part 1
I learned a new verb this week: obséder. It has a much more of a royal, passionate vibe than 'obsess', maybe because it's structure is of an active verb, while the English counterpart feels submissive somehow.
You succumb to your obsession. But in French, it's more like you choose it.
In any case, I'm totally obsédé with Vincennes and I hope I'll be able to explain why.
