For starters, how can you not love a city that lets you bring your dog into the restaurant? Your little friend is allowed to sleep under the table or snuffle around your feet looking for crumbs. This is the most civilized thing I have ever heard of!
Today we did a whirlwind tour that included the Eiffel Tower, a boat taxi up and down the Seine and a trip to the Louvre. The color of the light is magnificent. I can't imagine that any other season could top our day today. It was cool enough for a light coat with a scarf, brilliant sun and warm golds and browns still in the trees. Vive la Paris.
And, as further proof of how civilized Paris is, here is a photo our hotel room key. Some may think that this is cumbersome and not practical for carrying in one's pocket. Ha! You simple lock your room and leave the key at the front desk until you return. Each room has a little pidgin hole behind the concierge's desk where he stores your key until you return and ask for it again. I told you this city is the height of civilization! I will really enjoy returning with my husband one day. Right, Mike? Please?
