Free! concert in a beautiful building.

book cover Wondered whether I was pleased with this purchase (I was really looking for the writer notebook with the Paris maps), but when I opened it and started reading, I really liked the snappy writing style and some details that go missing with the more sanitized guidebooks. One new detail for me (and going back over the 1st and 2nd arrondissements) is the opportunity for another free outing, this one at St-Eustache, with its 8,000-pipe organ and free recitals Sundays at 5:30 p.m.

So, thanks Vesna Neskow for your great writing. An odd thing while learning the arrondissements is to open this book which divides Paris into seven tourist areas, with no overt attention to the arrondissements. The addresses to the suggested tourist spots mention it in passing: St-Eustache (rue du Jour, 1st, 01.42.36.31.05, http://www.st-eustache.org
