Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : March 25th 2009
44 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, March 26, 2009 MB Where shopping is an artform CityofLight. . .Abuskerplayslejazzon a chillydayona bridge across the Seine. JANNE SELETTO THE slim woman on a bicycle in the January snow, the shop selling nothing but harps and the jazz band playing on a bridge on the Seine on a freezing winter day. And the couples starting to dance. It's easy to see why Paris is known as the City of Light, and the City of Lovers. But to many of its 12 million inhabitants, it's more: Paris, like New York, is the centre of everything. ''It's magnificent,'' said the waiter at our nearest cafe. ''The city is alive. At any time, even late at night, there is always something. And it's always unexpected, surprising.'' I'm in a cafeteria on the rooftop of the Georges Pompidou Centre, France's temple to modern art. The building is hideous and the art inside is worse. But the rooftop is fairyland. From my seat I can see three Gothic cathedrals. One is Notre Dame -- the sublime 14th century masterpiece. I can't even find the others on my map. I can see the glittering golden dome of Hotel des Invalides, with the elegant Rodin sculpture museum next door. When we were there yesterday admiring Rodin's exquisite work, I was amazed to find a few paintings by Van Gogh, Renoir and Rembrandt thrown in as an unadvertised bonus. On our way back to the Seine, we passed the shop of harps, then a boutique dedicated to topaz jewellery and then, the strangest shop of all, a store full of nothing but samurai masks. This is the city for specialty shopping: art, jewellery, clothes and best of all, food. Fabulous cheese shops, real bread shops, specialty poultry shops, and of course, patisseries that draw in previously-slim customers like moths to a flame. Every shop is stylish, with its beauty somehow packaged up in the overwhelming beauty of the city itself. But even Paris isn't perfect. There's too much dog poo on the streets, too many cars on the roads and in winter the cold is ridiculous -- an average of 0C for our entire visit. But the worst thing is how Paris ends: go one metro stop too far and the dream turns into a nightmare with block after block of ugly high-rise. These soul-less, unloved suburbs are where most Parisians live. But I can't see the skyscrapers from my table at the Georges Pompidou. Instead I see the red roses on every table top and my waiter, in smart suit and silk tie, approaching. It's my hot chocolate, which comes as a jug of wickedly rich chocolate and another of frothy milk. Here in the centre of the most beautiful city on the planet, the dream doesn't ever have to end.
