I first came upon this city by chance in 1972 while living in Madrid. A group of youngs decided to take a curiosity trip to the Eternal Paris of Marlon Brando and Maria Schneider in the The Last Tango in Paris. well it has been a virus of wonderful proportions, now my blog is name after it paris1972. I am sure that once you come here you will get infected too,and then we can trade tips on what is better here at VT ::)

The photo is taken from the north tower at Cathédrale de Notre Dame over looking the spiral tower of the Sainte Chapelle ,the vert galant gardens and the Seine river. Paris is a movable feast!

And many had said it; here is just one!

I love Paris in the spring time
I love Paris in the fall
I love Paris in the winter when it drizzles
I love Paris in the summer when it sizzles
I love Paris every moment
Every moment of the year
I love Paris, why, oh why do I love Paris
Because my love is here
I love Paris every moment
Every moment of the year
I love Paris, why, oh why do I love Paris
Because my love is here
She’s there, she’s everywhere
But she’s really here.

-Cole Porter
