Where were you 3 years ago when I visited Paris! I could have used you and your tour LOL

It was a nightmare being on a tour bus, it overheated and broke, it was suggested we find other means of transportation or wait God knows how long for another bus.

In a nutshell, I hailed a cab NY style.

I will bookmark your website. Good stuff!

Hello, Richard,

I wrote you a fan letter some months ago and every day I look forward to my Eye Prefer Paris fix, reading about your adventures...and they are adventures. I need Paris like I need air. So, thanks again for all your lovely photos and tales. They keep my spirits up til I get back there.
Bien des choses,


Hi Richard,
Your story about Edith Lecoq was a particularly interesting and meaningful post for me. She does indeed sound like an extraordinary woman who always goes not only one (metaphorical) step further .... but who travels great distances to make things happen and make things better. Voisin a Voisin might be just a little bit like EyePreferParis - they "act local" once a week in contrast to the daily global get together that you create. Thanks so much ! Again you've reached out and given us a slice of Paris that is delightful, important and very real. xoxox from Cheryl in Hollywood


richard, I absolutely love this post. Just great reading about Edith and what a vibrant, interested and generous person she is. You always seem to meet up with the greatest people... which speaks worlds about you.

Cheers from NYC


What a great story! You seem to attract good things.
