Gay Paree: the return...
Tomorrow Marky and I are going away for a few days. A treat as one of Marky's Christmas presents from me, I'm taking him on an all expenses paid romantic weekend to Paris. We're traveling Eurostar early tomorrow morning and returning late Sunday night. We're staying in the chic Bel-Ami Hotel in the heart of the Saint Germain des Pres area on the Left Bank within walking distance of the Seine, Latin Quarter, the gay district, fashionable boutiques and piano, jazz and sleaze bars. During the day we'll probably do a whistlestop tour of all the Paris sights in an open top bus, visit a couple of small galleries and do a bit of light shopping. Night time we'll be eating out and hitting the bars. I hope we have a good time as it'll be Marky's first real trip to Paris. Me, I used to live there.

The other reason for going this particular weekend is because it's Marcus's birthday weekend and a gang of fourteen of us are going to the Buddha Bar on Saturday night for a meal. Marcus and I did a reckie last November checking out all the good places to eat and drink - the Buddha Bar came out top just on the style quotient alone. Naturally Bona is organising the group outings and "the big switch on" at 8 o'clock (which I should really keep stumm about).
