Paris 1

I’ve just returned from a wonderful month in Paris. Yes, I’m a lucky man.

We had a superb flat near the Pompidou Centre and spent the entire time walking about, looking at things, eating and drinking. Cheese!

I’m working up a comprehensive report, for those interested, but in addition I’m going to post a number of impressions, memories, sights and experiences in no particular order.

First is one of the coolest things I saw during my month-long Paris sojourn: a real-life spy camera in a hat from 1910. It was in the sensational Musée des Arts et Métiers (Museum of Arts and Crafts).
