‘Paris is Paris’

Peter Turnley:

Last night, as my plane descended upon Paris and I looked out the window of the plane and saw the lights of the city and the Eiffel Tour shining the distance-my heart began to race and my blood pressure lifted a bit and I had the impression I’ve been having now for the past 50 years every time I return to the city-the impression is one of wow-now we are talking-this is game time. Paris is the big league of cities. I feel the same way about New York when I cross the bridge from JFK to Manhattan-but yet different. Paris is Paris!
