Paris is beautiful.

Our hotel is fairly central (Metro: Madeleine) so went for a walk plotting our strategies for tackling the town went we return from a sojourn on the coast. We are in easy reach of the Louvre, Notre Dame, Sainte Chapelle, the Seine and other such treats.

Despite a reputation for otherwise, all people we have met so far have been delightful.

Celebrated our first night here with French Onion Soup, red wine and a platter of cheeses.

Seemed the right thing to do.


  1. Oh one of my dream city! Do you guys feel romantic yet?

  2. omigod!! I would so love to go to the Louvre!

  3. Ooh la la! C'est une photographe magnifique!

  4. my experience has been the same. Only once was a Parisian rude to me - an elderly lady asked me directions and was nonplussed that I turned out to be American, and crisply rude. I gather they don't tolerate rudeness or fools, however, - so could be that the reputation is a result of the story teller giving offence.
