|Just an ordinary room at the Hotel des Grands Hommes|
Almost 20 years ago, when Belovedest and I first went to Paris, we stayed at the Hotel des Grands Hommes (the hotel of the great men, NOT the hotel of the big guys). I don't even remember how the hotel was chosen, but we really enjoyed it, and have been back a few times since then, but not recently.
But when we were planning for our anniversary, it seemed an obvious choice, and it was a BRILLIANT selection. They continue to enhance the rooms and the common areas, and literally every corner of every section of the hotel is beautiful and holds delights. Our room was small, of course, but beautifully appointed, with a bathroom that was both spacious and utterly immaculate.

Hotel des Grands Hommes - at the Place du Pantheon (seriously, literally 30 feet from the Pantheon). Gracious, English-speaking staff, a beautiful hotel, excellent service - I can't recommend it highly enough.
One of the oddest experiences we always have in Paris is that we seem to hear the same songs over and over - and not necessarily things like top 40 hits! Our very first visit, we hear Frank Sinatra's "My Way" at LEAST four different places - it became almost bizarre...
This trip, we heard these two. For this first one, I defy you to sit and watch this without at least wanting to dance.
