|Subject: Re: London and Paris in January|
The problem with the weather is that it can be unexpected. Our usual mild Christmas in England and in Paris turned into week of often sub-zero weather. Luckily, Paris and London both are warmer than the surrounding areas. Three years ago (or 4) France had hurricane weather with widespread damage and power outages between Christmas and New Year! So be sure and check the 5 day forecast before you leave.
In Paris, self-service restaurants are usually inexpensive and there are also a lot of sandwich shops. Chinese and Vietnamese restaurants can be inexpensive also.
