Paris, as everyone says, is truly a stunning city. Interestingly, the city seems to abruptly finish at the end of this cute little street which leads out into the park surrounding the Eiffel Tower. I spent the day walking around taking photos before heading off to Brittany via high speed TGV train. I think we clocked speeds in excess of 200 km/h. Each time we passed an oncoming train (combined speed perhaps about 350 km/h) the windows sucked out and made a disconcerting noise that took some getting used to.
