The library has many guides to Paris, and they are all helpful for planning a trip to the City of Light. But these books might help you find it something a bit unusual--whether it is fashion, food, or a quiet corner.
Fashion insiders' guide: Paris by Carole Sabas ; illustrated by Caroline Andrieu — Each entry includes a description of recommended spots with hints about when to go, who to ask for, and what to get. The inclusion of additional advice from local fashion celebrities on their favorite places to frequent puts readers in-the-know.
Quiet Paris by Siobhan Wall — From formal gardens to light-filled art galleries, chic boutiques, small tearooms and gourmet delicatessens, Quiet Paris has over one hundred and twenty tempting places to savor the quiet delights of this most seductive of cities.
From what I can tell, Las Vegas is like having everything in one place. There is a bit of New York, a bit of California, a little bit of Detroit, and even a castle. You could play some pretty good jokes on your friends, like LB did to me, by taking pictures there. Sneaky Bear.
Hey kids. Boy. Librarians sure like bears. They find them everywhere. Miss Ruth found one of my cousins at the Paradise Inn at Mt. Rainier National Park, Washington. Have you ever been to a National Park? They are all over the country and have some of the prettiest scenery. And you might just see some wild animals (like bears!) in their natural habitat. What makes Mt Rainier so special is that this beautiful mountain is actually a volcano! It hasn't erupted in a few thousand years though, so you don't have to be afraid if you visit. And it's so tall, you can actually see snow and glaciers on top, even in the summertime. Whoa, that's tall. As you can see, my cousin is in charge of the mail that all the tourists send home to their friends and family. I like mail too. That's a hint, in case you didn't pick up on it. I'd love to hear from you!
