Subject: Re: Queries re Paris - Help please!
To me Paris is delightful any time. The summer weather can be very pleasant, and it is always somewhat crowded as it is a big city and one of the most beautiful in the world.

I would go AFTER my daughter's audition (your family is MOST important, and Paris will still be there) but I would not worry about summer conditions and crowds and I would go ASAP after family responsibilities. Paris is just too beautiful to pass up, especially for a free apartment in a fantastic location. What could be so bad about walking by the Rodin Musee daily?

I can't help you about airfares.
