Having had two rather full tourist days whilst dragging round the jet-lag crankiness, I still find Paris marvellously interesting. Public buildings are decorated tastefully.
The Metro is efficient. Historical events shaped the culture they have today – we have agreed we need to read a lot more to sort out all the Louis and the Napoleons, and to determine the real motivation for French art and the revolution.
The food is all good. I don’t understand why the food is so good. We wonder if it relates to butter content……..
Today, I get to see Foucault’s original Pendulum!
