After wrestling with a very long line at French customs, racing to catch my plane, and watching four movies on my Air France flight, I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things. Among the things I can tell you is that $1.50/euro makes for a very expensive trip and that Air France's on-demand in-flight entertainment system is great - there's nothing like being able to fast forward through the "action" sequences in "The Bourne Ultimatum" to cut to the chase, so to speak.
While I was away:
- I see that the latest S&P/Case-Shiller Index shows a YoY 6.6% drop in home prices for DC.
- MRIS' blog had kind words to say about this site today.
- 1440 Church St NW #504 has apparently gone under contract.
I'll finish for this evening with a photo of a Parisian real estate agency window located on Avenue Mac-Mahon. Multiply the prices by 1.5 to get the US dollar-based price. I can't speak to whether the prices are high or low, but ~$730,000 will get you a 4th floor 3 room apartment near the l'Arc de Triomphe. It's approximately 600 sq ft in size and includes a wine cellar [click on the photo, look at the ad, upper left]. And mortgage interest is not deductible in France.
