Prepared as we were for the worst-case scenario, ie  the surly waiters, rude clerks, and generally indifferent citizens of Paris, our plans for this 11-day holiday were to visit the City of Light for 5 or so days, then rent a car and visit the countryside. The reality we found was a warm and friendly people who were helpful and willing to speak English when they could (often too easily since I was eager to practice my French - poor though it was). As a result we spent the entire time in the City and were charmed by its beauty, history and most importantly its people. We hope you enjoy our photos, and we plan to add more and include some commentary as we can.
