FRANCE, PARIS.

Capital.

I've been visiting Paris on and off for over 60 years., with parents, friends, and
alone. -- I've picked out my favourite pictures. Montmartre is a special area. ----Laterly
Paris as been a hub for holidays further afield. Overnight stays going or returning.
A lot of stays centred on Gare du Nord area. This district as many hotels. --A
favourite eating/drinking place is a bar called Pinte du Nord in rue Saint Quentin , near
the rail station. It is a small place where locals and tourists mix
sit at tables or stand at the bar. -- FRANCE,  PARIS.  --  Pinta  du  Nord  Bar., Rue  Saint  Quentin.  Near  Gard  du  North  rail  station. I  first  came  across  this  bar  30  years  ago and  have visited every  time  in  Paris.  Great  to  use  on  homeward  journey  by  Eurostar.
