I've blogged about how impressed I am with the bullet trains in Europe. God, they rock and roll through the countryside! Here's our exit in Paris.
We left Paris from the Gare de Lyon. This old station, now getting rennovated, features perhaps the most amazing restaurant I've ever seen, Le Train Bleu. Check out their web site for pics of the classic, old world decor. Fabulous! Of course, ever the perve, I was most interested in the mermaids decorating the ceiling. Best set of breasts I've ever seen on classic sculpture.
Anyway, train stations in these great cities of Europe are often beautiful to behold, and the modern trains that connect them simply take your breath away.
