That was a surprise. I just bought some Eurostar tickets and went. The WX forecast was for clear, but it was cloudy and cold and damp, but no rain or snow. It was just . . . wow! It clicked why there are so many expatriates in the city. There are some similarities to New York, but it is definitely Paris. Definitely art!
The art is Paris. On the streets, and even the street lights and subway portals have style.
I even had a guide and new Friend, Fiona, who's been there before to show me the way, and speak proper French for me - not the High School stuff I speak.
