    I absolutely love the yard and also the tub. The rest is okay, but i wouldn't choose most of it.

    Happy trails to you...until we meet again.
    I love & miss you Dad.

    They blew all their money on the building restorations and then bought super-cheap furniture. Those red curtains and the weird head-height tiebacks are truly hideous. They also couldn't afford any landscaping around the house. A few flowering shrubs would add some colour and soften the whole place.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    It's a well maintained 19th century house (it's not that old, most city houses are older than that), nothing says that it's been recently restored - the non-ostentatious decoration and landscaping are typically what those houses look like when they belong to their ancient owners

    Meh. I've always heard that the French are quite wonderful outside of Paris. Probably like how you can't judge all Americans by all the douchey cunts who live in L.A. (any present company excluded of course).

    honesty, i think the whole parisian thing is way overstated. like how people say new yorkers are rude and obnoxious.
    not true. i've never had anything but positive experiences in both paris and new york.
