- just like London, only London is better
- smells of dog-shit everywhere (this from a guy who divides his time between Paris, London and New York)
- full of beggars
- full of rude French people
Mr K-E has been a few times and last October he went on a boozy weekend with his colleagues. At that time, I thought right, we are definitely going in 2007.
So this morning, we booked it all on Expedia. 5 days and four nights in Paris on Eurostar, staying in the 4-star Terrass Hotel in Monmartre. I was happy to stay in a 2/3-star cheapo place, but Mr K-E (after his experience in October) said no fucking way. OK, then, 4-star luxury it is.
We also booked a "package" - dinner up the Eiffel tower, night-time river cruise on the Seine and a cabaret at the Moulin Rouge. It costs £105 each, but what the heck.
