Back to Paris

And so back to Paris, a bumpy ride would be an understatement and the Hotel we have booked at huge expense is so bad I could cry NEVER EVER stay in a Novotel it is such a rip off and the reason we chose it was for the swimming pool which is unusable, the bathroom is dirty and the room is so hot we have to sleep with the window open or cook how this ever got 4 stars is a mystery.. (After complaining got some money back)This is where I wish Emin was more adventurous as Ive seen so many lovely boutique hotels that look lovely and are probably the same price. Sadly Paris has become even dirtier than my last stay truly I have never seen so much filth. The New Year was a total washout no fireworks any where and the morning after left Paris buried under a sea of vomit, excrement, piss and broken glass everywhere.
I have become one of those hideous tourists traipsing from landmark to landmark to show Leyla the sites including a 3 hour wait just to get half way up the Eiffel Tower. If its picture is on a map shes had her photo taken in front of it NO GALLERIES allowed which is sad but lots of walking. the Marais and the Left Bank are looking very good and yes I still love the place which is obvious by the photo ratio.
