Paris Sounds Good

Paris always sounds like a good getaway

Whenever the world comes crashing down,

It seems like the perfect place,

To pick up and run to

I hear she’s a good holder of secrets,

And although many say,

That she’s a tough old girl,

I like to think it really comes from,

All those lost souls,

Who fled to her for redemption

  1. Last Tuesday my sister and I drove my mom to the American Embassy in Paris. Driving down the Champs Elysées, I couldn’t help but notice how utterly ugly that Avenue was. It looked like a giant airport duty free. I am French, I have never understood why foreigners find this unwelcoming, grey, dirty, expensive and snob city, appealing or romantic. “The beholder of secrets” if I may, would be Venice.
    Paris doesn’t “sound good”, it sounds like an old broken accordion. There are a few hidden treasures there like in most European cities but don’t waste your time or your money. Sorry to be a killjoy but France has so much more to offer than Paris.
