A corner in Paris
In Paris for two nights and a day of meetings, but I did get out this evening. When I visit France, I require a croque monsieur. Fortunately, there was one with a cold Stella beside it steps from my hotel on the right bank near the Opera. I enjoyed it very much.
Afterward, I walked around for about 15 minutes; the streets were generally quiet, although I did pass an intersection with several very attractive women, each of which was sitting alone in an idling SmartCar. I think it is great that the prostitutes here are concerned for the environment.
No, I did not have the brass, or perhaps the affrontery, to take their pictures. You'll have to settle for a Parisian bistro by night...
I'll probably get kicked out of the righty blogosphere for saying this, but Paris is my second favorite city.
Points to the first reader who guesses my most favorite city.
Seattle (I cannot spell :))
San Jose, Costa Rica
The prostituée probably would've charged you for snapping a picture, anyway. Rights to her image, and all that.
Have a crepe suzette for me. The French make great desserts.
oh darn, there are soooo many.
It can't be Chicago, because you would have stayed there.
It's gotta be somewhere exotic and foreign, where language might be a barrier.
I'd say somewhere in Spain, perhaps Madrid.
After New York, all cities are Bridgeport.
No, its Chicago. I had my reasons for leaving, and (to make the point) I would not settle down in Paris either.
Paris is awesome indeed, although I prefer the croque madame.
Thank God it's not Washington, DC.
