Very Timely - N.Y. Times Special Section On The City Of Light

What follows is a blog entry from the N.Y. Times' look at Paris in today's issue. I agree wholeheartedly with this person:

"So many people come to Paris for a few days and just rush from the Eiffel tower to the Lourve to the Musee d'Orsay to a recommended restaurant etc.. and actually miss soaking up "Paris" in it's true sense. Go see the main iconic structures and museums, but spend one day "getting lost" in the city..get on the Metro and just get off at a interesting sounding stop and explore that neighborhood, Paris' delights are to be found in a obscure bistro w/a surly owner, a little paper shop in the 13th, sitting in a garden with some cheese watching children play, Have a picnic with a 10e bottle of bordeaux. Paris is to be ingested, not inhaled."
