From Heather’s Desk

I just returned to Paris after a month touring for the Naughty Paris Guide in the United States, enjoying all of my favorite Americana – Halloween, presidential election excitement, Whole Foods, Philadelphia cheese steaks, tomato pie…I would have done more shopping except my timing was off: the exchange rate between the Euro and Dollar has actually gone back to $1.28 for €1 after peaking at $1.59 in July. But this is very good news for travelers amidst the doom-and-gloom economic news. Airline tickets have gone down, and there are some great deals out there if you’d like to get away. Paris has welcomed me back with chilly temperatures and the beautiful holiday lights decorating each neighborhood. I’ll be updating the Secrets of Paris blog throughout the month of December with holiday ideas for Christmas and New Year’s Eve events in Paris, starting here with a listing of the Marchés de Noël. Happy Holidays!
