Why Paris? Reason #1

“Whenever you are in Paris at twilight in the early summer, return to the Seine and watch the evening sky close slowly on a last strand of daylight fading quietly, like a sigh.” Kate Simon

The first reason artists and writers (and everyone else) through the centuries have fallen in love with Paris is that it is so beautiful!

Can any city be as beautiful as Paris is reputed to be?

Well, yes. And no.

Paris is indeed an astoundingly, breathtakingly beautiful city.

It is also a city of dreams, of illusion, and of fantasy.  So it is not always as it seems. And it is not always and everywhere beautiful.

But it is most of the time. And in most places.

And if you don’t know what I mean, you really should just come and see for yourself. You should!

Can you do it? I hope so!

A bientot…
