Subject: Paris Cheap?
Dear Ziners,

Having just returned from Paris, I found it to be expensive, especially for Canadians, as our dollar is low in comparison with the Euro, while the U.S. dollar is almost at par with the Euro. However, since I also went to Germany, I found that Paris was more expensive than Berlin. My accommodation is Berlin, was bigger, more modern, nicer and cheaper than the one I had in Paris. In Berlin, food prices were half of the prices I paid in Paris. Since we rented small apartments by the week in both places and ate mostly like the locals, buying in the local bakeries, markets, etc., I thought that the comparison of cost I made between these two cities should be fairly accurate. I also found taxis cheaper in Berlin.
