I’m no frencher having seen Paris. I am however, more tourist savvy. I used to be a tour guide, but Paris reminded me how it is to be bumped down the ladder of savvy and clamouring to see the great sights like the rest of the sunburnt boobs.

Will try to pull it together for the rest of the trip.

Truth be told we were a little tired after only a weekend on the road; i understand why backpacking is done by the under 30 set.

Eiffel tower is actually really cool, hype notwithstanding. Couchsurfing in Montmartre was the stuff of dreams and most Parisians weren’t rude, though the ones who were were spectacularly so.
