And we are considered to be here in low season. I don't think I can even give you guys a good comparison. It's a Mecca for some I would ...
... which greeted me with its characteristic hourly sparkling show. Every hour, it's as if a million paparazzis latch onto and cover the structure to take bright photos facing the outside. I do not use the word "magical" lightly, but my first night in Paris was very magical indeed. I felt so appreciative of being able to return to Paris at my age and to be able to enjoy the city exactly how I wanted to. Now all I wanted to do was to shower in that one bedroom apartment.
