You know that you spent a day in a bubble when it’s late at night and you find that Paris has suffered a major terrorist attack and you knew nothing about it.
There’s enough news out there about what has happened and there’ll be more that comes of it in the next few days, so I won’t try to be CNN.
I spent two separate stints in Paris, both of only two days and one night. Paris was the city I always dreamed of. The Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, the Sacré Coeur, Les Champs-Elysées; they all lived up to and exceeded my expectations.
The city is beautiful. It has a look and a charm that is so French, so Paris. No other city is like it.
I’m saddened to hear of the tragedy, but I hope no one runs scared. If you want to see Paris, go see it. You will not regret it, nor forget it.
And by the way, shortly after my first trip to Paris is when several bombs exploded on the trains. I still went again.
