Paris in The Fall
updated: Nov 24, 2012, 4:00 PM

By David Powdrell

My wife and I had never been to Paris before. We've always leaned towards tropical climates with surf. But the opportunity arose and we took it….Paris in the fall.

Snippets from my journal notes: Musee d'Orsey is a sweet museum and the lines are shorter in the fall. 95% of French women wear designer boots. Toy sailboats race fast across the Tuileries water in the fall. Cold winds blow right through you at the top of the Eiffel Tower at night. Nobody smiles or makes eye contact in the Metro subway; faces become intentionally featureless. The tobacco industry is winning the war in Paris. French coffee; strong and to the point. Monet is the man; Sisley is a close second. Fresh warm croissants are sinfully good. Parisian's typically spend over 2 hours at a meal, yet the Paris McDonalds restaurant is reported to be among the highest grossing internationally. "La Ville-Lumière" aka The City of Light makes for interesting photography. We're reminded daily in the Metro that pickpockets are common in Paris, a product of big city life I suspect. The community bicycle stations throughout the city are very cool; would love to see them in Santa Barbara and Carpinteria sometime.
