La Ville De Lumieres, Et Aussi...

Paris is really best experienced when you can take in the city itself and live here (there) for a few months.  I'm studying abroad in Paris for 6 months, and already a month in I feel like I'm not going to have enough time here to explore and to understand.  And it's the only place that I know of where you can write a normal description of your daily events and end up mentioning at least one or two places that are known the world over (as in "Today I was walking along the Seine, across the river from La Tour Eiffel, when [so and so] called me and asked if I wanted to meet at the Champs Elysees.  I said I was within walking distance and that I'd meet him by the Arc de Triomphe").  It truly is an amazing city, and offers so much to discover.  No other city can really compare.
