Travel Thought for the Week

“As a rule the Parisian may be said to invite and deserve the confidence of travellers. Accustomed by long usage to their presence, he is skillful in catering for their wants, and recommends himself to them by his politeness and complaisance."
– Karl Baedeker, Baedeker’s Paris and Its Environs (16th edition, 1907)
