3 days in Paris (May 18th-20th, 2009)

I took the Chunnel from London to Paris on Monday. I went with friends that had never been, so I apologize for the touristy photos. I was their tour guide nonetheless. Paris is very affordable for eating and drinking. I am grateful for non -stop flights to Europe from Miami.

Lovely pics! The simplicity mixed with grandeur is breathtaking! Paris truly is a remarkable city..

P.S I don't think you took that many touristy shots. It's allways hard not to take a touristy shot in city where every street corner has a tourist attraction..

Thanks. Wish I had more time to explore the outer neighborhoods and the Left Bank. Le Marais is still one of my all time favorite places. Parisians are so friendly and accommodating. The brie cheese rules over there.

I noticed that in London all of the tube stations had escalators. In the Paris metro there were none.

Don't exagerate, in Paris many subway stations have escalators. There are fewer than in London but absolutly not none.
There are fewer escalators because Paris metro station are less deep than London tube station.
Anyway every deep stations have lift or escalator in Paris metro.

I thought so, thanks for clarifying. I did not see every Paris metro stop but used it all the time for it's efficiency.

Those are brilliant photos - they don't look touristy at all, except maybe the ones of Tour Eiffel and Arc de Triomphe hehe . Looks like you had a cool time, look forward to more if there are more.
