Paris was amazingly lovely. Everywhere I looked there were charming shops, fine architectural details and rich culture. It really was everything I hoped it would be. Very old books in french everywhere. Vendors selling ephemera, sheet music, and lithoprints...even before we went to the flea markets (next post, promise!).
The people...eh, not so great. Some were nice, some not. Lots of crowds. Got pretty weary of pressing bodies and vendors calling at us. Pretenious, annoying teenagers nearly sent me over the edge at the end of our lovely dinner. And I thought teens from the suburbs were bad, sheesh!
And of course I shot some video so you can get a sense for the streets and feeling of the place. Enjoy!
