You find dozens of places...
You find dozens of places worth to visit in Paris. And it’s very likely you have no time enough to visit all. But this is not a competition. You don’t have to be everywhere. Choose what it’s most interesting for you. Find some time to have a cap of coffee, sit on the grass in a park, enjoy you are here. I love to be in Paris. I love to go back to the places I like most, places where I can recall lovely memories. And all the times I’m here, I have an impression that Paris become even more fascinating, splendid, charming, monumental and I become smaller and smaller. I feel like a little girl in the wonderland here.

Liane Foly is my favorite French singer, and easily hold a spot in my list of top five favorite singers ever. Great music transcends language, and this is great music. You can fully appreciate the drama, emotion, range, spirit, and power of these songs without speaking a word of French. If you do know some French, you will be touched and moved by the words as well.
The song "DOUCEMENT" is simply gorgeous. You will note a Brazilian flavor in some songs, thanks in large part to the amazing background vocals of Trio Esperanca, three lovely and talented Brazilian women (whose acapella CD's are woth checking out). “Au Fur Et à Mesure” is another marvelous, mellow song.
Liane Foly's greatest hits CD gives a retrospective of her career so far. This CD is called “Au Fur Et à Mesure: Best Of.” Surprisingly, my favorite song, "LES PETITES NOTES" is not included on the greatest hits CD. I recommend the CD titled “Les Petites Notes” which contains this song plus a lot of Brazilian flavor songs.
I had the pleasure of seeing Liane Foly perform in Paris at the Olympia. She is one of those rare talents who sounds even better live. Backed by a tight jazz band, she sparkled and soared that evening.
For a delicious taste of French music, try Liane Foly. You can find her CDs on Amazon.
Parc des Buttes Chaumont
I had read about this park before but thought it was a bit out of the way. However over the last year or two we have been venturing further afield and having seen the great tips by VT contributor 'davequ' (you should really read his pages - they're great : http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/48d21/18308/ ) we decided to take a trip to Bellevile and beyond and to take in this park. This was a Saturday morning in April 2008 and as it seemed to be one of the first really sunny days of the year the park was full of people either exercising, bringing their children to play, walking dogs, or just hanging out in the sun. We absolutely loved it and spent a really great few hours exploring and watching the world go by. There are quite a few different parts to the park and it has a few hills but nothing desperately strenuous if you're reasonably fit - you can miss them out whilst still enjoying the beauty of the place. If you do feel like a bit of exertion tho' the view from the 'temple' at the top is fantastic - right across to Sacre Coeur. Having done the exploring we sat down with a yummy crepe (citron et sucre - the simple ones are the best!) We'd definitely take a picnic next time.
