I didn't really 'get it' until I saw it. I also loved the Metro, all of the interesting people. I am embarrassed to say whenever I heard live music, I would burst into tears. It was all so beautiful, and surreal.
Sadly, fabric shopping is never going to be the same again. Paris, has amazing fabric stores. We stayed in a nice area of Paris, with a definite Italian flair. The kids loved the market, the metro and the parks. And our date? Well, it was kind of awesome. We went out for drinks and then to the opera. Very grown up of us:
So yes, Paris, I loved you, and it was fun, but it's over now. I am just a simple country girl, not meant for the big city.
