iam a franco phile,and to see some of the sites in the clip are great.  the midnight blue at dusk on the scene from the sacrecour is something to see in person ,i can tell doug mack a few other out of the way places that are of the beaten track because we have always traveled as cheap as possible in paris.
  i hope to see more of his clips and i really hope he would contact me.

As someone old enough to have used the $5 a day books (although I early on went a little classier using the $10 per day editions), I appreciate this revisiting of the past.  And Doug writes/presents very well.  How “bout a similar sojourn to England?

I have some guidebooks to Europe from 1889. Now I am sorely tempted to use them.
