Paris, Je Déteste!

Just read this little gem on the always-amusing Platform page....

'The novelist Guy de Maupassant hated the tower so much that he allegedly ate lunch there every day because it was the only place in Paris where he couldn’t see the tower itself. That’s a pretty funny and typically French story, a Brit would have just turned his chair through 180 degrees and resentfully sipped his or her tea.'

But....Paris is my wet dream of a city! How anyone could not adore it, I haven't the foggiest. You have to admire this guy's absolute dedication to his loathing, though.
