Okay, passionfruit, let's hear about the drunks on the metro on NYE.

Eagerly awaiting your next installment!

I've had problems reading your blog -- not sure if it is my browser or what but it just takes forever to load. So I've only really read the first entry but I've been following everyone's comments on this thread and have been sort of able to keep up. Enjoying what I do get . . .

The mess in the metro is something that happens every New Year's Eve. If you need to take the metro that night or early the next morning, it is something you have to brace yourself for, just like the people passed out on the trains riding back and forth. Quite a sad way to "celebrate" but I figure it is useful if being in that condition once is enough to teach them never to do it again. Yes, wishful thinking...

I would like to say that I am kind of happy that PFD has abandoned us. It indicates that she is a healthy normal young person who has priorities that do not include throwing crumbs to internet forum fanatics who have nothing better to do than lick every detail off their screen.

More power to you, PassionFruitDrink37, even though you sort of raped us for information before your trip. You had valid reasons.

PFD37...

Glad you enjoyed St Denis - one of our favorite places -- to me it is more mystical than Notre Dame.

One of our visits about 4 years ago, we walked around to the back side of the block facing the basilica with all the touristy restaurants ...and found a tiny joint that had some grilled chicken in a really tasty sauce with frites and a drink for about 6 Euros.

If that's what was meant by a "workers area," then I say, "Bravo to the workers."

So glad you enjoyed your stay in Paris!
One thing that stuck with me after our visit is: TOO MANY FREAKING STAIRS! Stairs everywhere you go. No wonder French people are in such a good shape
Wow, you actually had the energy to go out in the evening! How did you do it?

I think she abandoned us. Like a one-night stand.

I feel so cheap -- used and tossed aside.
