Paris Day Three
This morning saw the discovery of the best sheet music shop in existence, "La Flute De Pan", situated in the Rome district of Paris. After a lovely long browse (with Larissa helping) I walked away with Mozart's Sonata in G Major, Keane and Mika song books, Harry Gregson-Williams's Narnia score and a selection of action movie film compilation scores. What a shop! I could have literally spent all day in there.
Wandering around is great; the weather is the perfectly overcast crispy cool type and just right for savouring the beautiful streets of Paris. In an attempt to beat the rather extortionate prices, we opted for a light lunch before heading off to 'Montparnasse' (a huge office block looking skyscraper) where you can enjoy a dazzling view of the city. Some other tourists were complaining about the cloud cover but I thought the weather made the view even more dramatic and perfect for a blip (courtesy again of our hotel's brilliant free wi-fi service).
The evening saw a trip to the local cinema to see Frost/Nixon (in its original English format). We love the cinema and it was lovely to sit in silence with an appreciatitive audience all behaving nicely. They even had the light-heartedness to laugh at a line in the film about Vienna being like Paris, but without the French!
