What's Next for LuLu LoLo?



LuLu LoLo’s Symbolic Journeys for People—


As I wander Paris,

With each step you will be with me in spirit.

I will walk in your shoes:

To a place you wish to revisit

Or to a place you have never been

Or I will perform an action you have always envisioned

You will be by my side in Paris.
