Paris Through a Seasoned Eye

by Richard West

Amidst the world’s most beautiful city (or is it Venice?), minutiae spotted during two days wandering Paris’s back streets, quais, bridges, passages, parks, squares, an arcade or two in perfect back end of the year weather—sunny, 60f, calm—during a recent New Year’s Eve visit.

    Richard, I enjoyed this idiosyncratic look at the details in this city full of giant (in every way) landmarks.
