One Night in Paris is a charming article written by Susan Kurosawa about a night when all of Paris hotels were booked solid and her and her partner had little to do.

The hustle and bustle of everyday life was not for me anymore. I never had any peace and quiet, there were too many cars on the road (French people don’t walk as much as the used to), I was surround all the time by neighbors, I had no yard or garden and the city was not very clean. Life had changed me and I wanted a piece of the old, quiet, French life that I saw in the movies. That’s what I wanted and that is what I found. Was I becoming an old fogey?!
