Opening Sentence of the Day: The Flaneur

"Paris is a big city in the sense that London and New York are big cities and that Rome is a village, Los Angles a collection of villages and Zurich a backwater."

-- The Flaneur: A Stroll Through the Paradoxes of Paris by Edmund White

January is the month for armchair travel and this book is just the ticket.
