make no mistake, i don't like crowds either. but i don't spend much time in the really crowded parts of the city. and in the meantime, i have 6 or 8 bakeries within a 2 street radius of my appartment, as many four seasons shops, probably twice as many cafés, nearly as many parks for when i want some green grass, concerts, circuses and ballets coming regularly from all over the world, libraries, galeries, museums, shops, friends within walking distance or a short métro ride away, nearly everything within walking distance or a short métro ride away in fact (except for the damned suburbs)... i could go on.
