Paris 9
Paris is the most visited city in the world. It is vibrant. There so much to see and to shop. The Moulin Rouge was an experience and the art was amazing. The shopping experience is unique in Paris. There is such a variety. The cab drivers are very helpful. The coffee shops on the streets are so many and it is an experience to sit and eat and stare at the people walking by. You do not have to chat with those sitting with you. They are just as fascinated to watch all the peolple walking by. One day we bought a french loaf of bread and cheese and sat on the pavement with a small bottle of wine. It was so enjoyabale. It is a city that all travellers should experience.
