Paris in Summer





We've escaped to Paris for 2 days. It's great fun to explore - and a LOT of walking to be done - even if you do use the metro liberally... We sat down to dinner at 10pm (we were busy exploring all day!) and the people on BOTH sides of us lit up their cigarettes - so we got up and left in search of somewhere free of smoke in which to eat... (and that was a BIG challenge). I'm an avid non smoker and find it incredible this smoking habit... Oh and when we did eventually find somewhere - I paid around $12 (8.5 euro) for a large serve of soft drink - this town certainly does know how to charge!

But hey - there is a lot to see and do despite these factors - but Sylvain and I were sitting down this evening thinking, we do enjoy Paris - but don't quite understand why so many people rave on and on about the place... really, what is it about Paris that moves people so? Or is it the idea of Paris? The food though - if we lived here we'd be impossibly fat from all the fantastic things you can find!! Anyway - more to explore... just giving you a taste.
