I LOVE PARIS. It's my second fav city of all time, losing out only to London because of the language barrier (& topshop). I find the 2 places rather similar actually. Good subways, awesome big brand shopping, awesome indie shopping (paris a lil better), awesome vintage shopping (lndn a lil better, hard to beat brick lane), beautiful parks/jardins, huge comprehensive museums... my only regret is that we prob spent too much time shoppin than to sight see and stuff. But no worries, another trip to Paris is scheduled at yr end. Je t'aime.
