Paris en juillet

PARIS

I visited Paris for the second time this summer for a few days, as part of a 3 week jaunt in Europe. The first time I was there, I stayed in the environs of the Notre-Dame (Hotel Notre-Dame). This time, I stayed in Montmartre (not far from Gare du Nord and Gare de l'Est), to get a different flavour of the city.

You make it looking good! I like how you like the same as me and pretty much everybody, those "human-scaled" street walls. I don't even know whether human-scaled actually means anything in that context, that term got on my nerves, but it's sure been very hard to rise above that kind of fabric.

The French? Pathetic! Always obnoxious! The total opposite of the Italians! Paris? Awfully polluted! The unbearable downtown! - (basically unattractive) Carla Bruni.

The low-rise streetwalls are always the first thing I notice when I visit Paris (and many European cities). It's the ideal kind of density, IMO. I find 3 floors and under to be too small for a large city, 4-10 is ideal.
