Paris 26th Oct 2005
I spent this weekend in Paris. I’ve not been for years and was struck by the elegance and beauty of the buildings. Central Paris seems to have retained a charm that has been swamped by identikit chains of stores and 60s developers in London. The small, seemingly family owned, shops that displayed mouth-watering wares and ornate apartment blocks made for a very pleasant stay.While there I started reading Jung (Wild Swans) Chang’s biography of Mao. A very interesting and well written book which I’m still plugging my through.
