Through a curious twist of time-reversed fate, I found myself
in Alain Carion's shop in late fall of 1998 while window-
shopping on Ile St. Louis. What makes this an odd coincidence
is that it predates my interest in meteorites by at least
6 months! I don't even recall seeing a meteorite while I
was there (nor Alain, for that matter -- he was probably in
the desert).

When I did finally meet Alain in Costa Mesa, CA last year,
I told him this story of "ships passing in the night," and
promised to return to his shop next time I'm in Paris. (Indeed,
I would probably try to stay at the Hotel Ile St. Louis, which
I checked out when I was there -- very cute. Considering the
small size of the island, it can't be more than a couple blocks
from Alan's shop.)
