Dec 02, 2006 8:59 pm Paris - the city of lights

Shivaji Jammalmadugu
Paris is a wonderful city and for us the best time to visit is summer.

Paris is famous for the Eiffel Tower world over. This is one part. The most important is large size museums within the city. Each museum may need 4-5 days of at least 8 hours a day for the treasures it carries including the Da Vinci Code.

If one has short of time, then cruise through the city in the guided cruises which are for a full day and normally cost anywhere between Euro 50 to Euro 200 depending on various options.

Eiffel Tower must be visited while in Paris. The engineering marvel with two levels of elevators which would take tonnes of load from ground level to the top in less than couple of minutes. It is very difficult to imagine the construction period of the tower 1887-89 when the electric motors were not even invented.

During the day, viewing city of Paris through a powerful binocular and correlating the landmarks in a map is a wonderful experience. At night the whole tower with its illumination creates a vibrant energy that would leave a permanent mark in the heart of the visitor. The view is absolutely spectacular.

Moulin Rouge is a wonderful place to visit. Beware, never enter any of the bars (even if you find an Asian sales guy inviting to have a look & offering a free drink). Most of these bars are notorious and rob the visitors. If one carries credit cards and no cash, they will bill for the full credit limit. Even having a local companion might not help unless he knows the bar personnel. Normally the locals will take the visitors to a restaurent / bar which is familiar to them even if it doesnt offer full experience of visiting Moulin Rouge.

Remember to say - Bonjour (Hello) to everyone you meet.
Merci (Thank you)
Merci Bien (Thank you very much)

The French guys told me Bon Appetite is a pure French word for a Happy Lunch and I was thinking it is English.

The French Fries are invented in Belgium.

Try French Wine, Brandy, Cogniac and Champagne.
