The Paris Year Back to Fun & Games

Back The Tourist The Streets Shopping

The Streets

On tonight’s episode: a relaxed walk though Paris and all the wonderful sights on the sides of the streets. These are actually the things that I miss most now. Not the iron lady*, not the museums, but all the boutiques, brasseries, bookshops, small real estate offices, hair salons, art galleries, night clubs all crowded together no matter if they neighbor on a narrow street or a big boulevard.

*Actually I think I visited the Eiffel tower a grand total of 4 times. And I went up… *gasp!* never! But I did go up on the Montparnasse tower, which has several advantages: very short queue, fast elevator to the top and a view of Paris with the Eiffel tower in it.
