Paris Trip Report

Yes, it only took me nearly a month to complete, but my trip report for Paris is now up at Travels with Grandma. It's a five-parter, so be prepared to print it out for later reading goodness.

Hi there, thanks for stopping by my blog. I just read about your Paris trip and thoroughly enjoyed it. I've been there twice and for some reason it's the one place I've been to that I've never been able to finish writing about. You might just have inspired me to do so.

Anyway, I know this is a long comment but I just wanted to say...
I couldn't agree more about the Mona Lisa - much ado about nothing.

If you want an African Bazaar, you have to go to Cairo. Drinking a Turkish coffee (after ordering 'Nescafe' no less) in the heart of this ancient city even outstripped the Pyramids, in my opinion.
But if you think the guys selling friendship bracelets in Montmarte were persistent, be warned: the street sellers in Cairo are 10 times worse... but it's still worth it ;-)

Oh, and PS: I'm exactly the same w.r.t. the blood sugar thing.

Hi Terri! I'd love to read whatever you end up writing about Paris. It took me a month to write my trip report, just because it was so overwhelming. So much to talk about, so many details.

Cairo. Wow. Have to say that Egypt scares me a little bit. Maybe one day I'll be brave enough to go.

What is the deal with the blood sugar thing? I have a hard time understanding what evolutionary purpose that sort of crankiness serves. Sure, it reminds you you're hungry and you might die if you don't eat, but the better chances are that your nearest and dearest will kill you because you're driving them mad. :)
