I have an old photo of me from my first trip to Paris (and the first trip I really remember)--I was five and I'm standing quite far from the camera in front of the Eiffel Tower.

Deirdre's Community Garden-Greenmarket Walk is a fantastic experience. Not just because we explored so many wonderful and hidden spots in the city, but also because Deirdre is the nicest person.
