Sorry but I screwed up, I stayed (last May) in the 6th (Latin Quarter) and
called it the 4th! Oops! The Marais is a wonderful district, I spent some
time there and found a cyber cafe in a Jewish Deli! There is really no bad
district, the Metro is easy and everywhere. Don't forget to go to the top of
the Samaritine for the view, it is wonderful. I visited the Marmotton Museum
and loved it. I finally visited Pere Lachise after so many times missing it
on past visits. We really enjoyed walking through the cemetery and
identifying all the interesting and famous characters that reside there now.
We found a wonderful Restaurant in the 6th (thanks to Sally Watkins) that we
really enjoyed, I can consult my notes if you would like.
May Day in Paris last year was crushing and huge, I never heard so many
interesting speeches in subways and I found it almost overwhelming. I had
spent three and a half days in Paris and was ready to leave but as I said the
holiday was oppressive. Still, Paris is always pleasant to reflect back upon.
