« The French Way of Thinninity | Main | A slice of tiramisu for Cassandra Kubinski »



Great. Now I've got to put Paris on my "must see" list. Thanks! Looked like fun.

Interesting view of Paris and the French. I spent most of my time in France in the area around Nice (where my in-laws were living at the time), and that's the part of France I fell the most in love with. And the French literature I love is along the lines of Moliere, Beaumarchais, Hugo, and Rostand(Interestingly, Cyrano de Bergerac was published 30 years after Therese Raquin, though Zola's novel sounds more modern). So, my view is slightly different. Some of them may be downer stories - but grand and glorious, just the same. Nothing dull or stifling.

Did you see Sacre Coeur? While all the sights of Paris were impressive, Sacre Coeur was my favorite.


I did not make it to Sacre Coeur, though I thought about it quite a bit. I had seen it in my last visit, along with the Louvre, and this time I wanted to spend my extremely limited hours seeing things I hadn't seen before.

As to French literature-- grand and glorious, yes, whether a downer or not.
