Subject: Re: Paris in July...
Hi Erina--

I was apprehensive about our trip to Paris last July, as I'd never traveled to Europe in the summer. But with four kids in school, I had no choice. Yes, there were a *lot* of Americans (in some areas, I heard more English spoken than I do walking around at home) but once we moved away from the most heavily touristed spots (Eiffel, Louvre, etc) we saw the same Paris I'd previously experienced during the off-season. Plus we had mostly decent weather and the days were long. I'd go back this July if I could.
