Do the usual Parisian sight-seeing like ET, Batteux Mouges
and Mon Martes. Cafe hop, see Louvre, Versailles
etc. for a few days then get out and about.
I love Paris but GoG is spot on.
The south can be a lot less expensive yet more fascinating. From castles to cacti from Cannes to Nice Market
and Brios on to Monaco and Ventigmilia Italy.
Pop in for a local band concert, tour a parfumery, grab local fruit and
cheese, explore mountain villages by train leaving your car parked. The time will pass too quickly. Just please don't be an ugly American, like
by opening political dialogue with a captive audience (family restaurant waiter)
and if you do happen to see one of those types I hope you mess with them plenty,
I do and I will whenever I revisit and detect such ba$tards.
