So it turns out that everything people say about Paris is true. I can't imagine anyone leaving Paris, without the intention to return asap.
What's even more amazing is that the filthy streets don't detract from Paris's beauty at all - it almost adds to it.
I know that sounds cliche, but until you experience Paris for yourself, it's beyond description.
Here are a few schnapps from in and around the streets and sites of Paris. You may notice quite a few of these pics are focused around the Eiffel Tower. That is for two reasons:
1/ Our accommodation was a barge on the Seine River, directly under the tower. Swe-eat.
2/ The Eiffel Tower so impressive (even more so in the flesh), that it's hard to restrain the snap-happy reflex.
