We've visited Paris for almost 40 years - ever since we were 22 years old -- and it always manages to surprise us. Things we never noticed suddenly appear.

Every time I visit Paris, I think about the way Hemingway referred to the City of Light as a "Moveable Feast." But I have to admit that I like the Russian translation of the title even more, "A Holiday That is Always with You."

The iconic words uttered by Bogart to Bergman in "Casablanca" so many years ago are just as true and meaningful today. Maybe even more so. You see, recently Bertrand Delanoe, the mayor of Paris, has created something called Paris Tourist Day, meant to encourage Parisians to adopt a more cordial view of tourists.
