* From the Home Office *

Sometimes it seems that nothing ever changes in Paris. People still go to Deux Magots, shop the Champs-Elysées, and club at Les Bains. It’s a cosy thing to think that everyone has this collective shared memory of Hemingway’s Paris. But things do change, and there’s actually a lot that goes on in Paris that most visitors (and even Parisians) never find out about. I hope, in some little way, that Secrets of Paris encourages you to step outside the regular guide book trails every once in awhile. Get off the bus in an unfamiliar neighborhood. Check out some lesser-known theatres and meet the Parisians who run those little boutiques that no one ever seems to go into. I know, I keep telling you to go to Disneyland…but have you ever gotten off the train at one of the stops in between Paris and Marne-La-Vallée? Just a thought…. -H
