Paris vs. Manila. by tucsonmike on 13 December 2009 11:42pm
 
I will have you all in on the vote. My mother is talking about taking us to France in July.

Yesterday, my protege emailed me and says he plans to get married in the Philippines and wants me to be his best man.

Hmmmmm........

Well Mike the Philippines are QUITE close to Australia hint hint.

Well, if money doesn't come into it I would vote for the Philippines, Mike. Even though France is quite close to England hint hint.

You don't want to disappoint your protege on his big day. And he wants you to be best man!

I'm sure your Mom would understand; there would always be another time for France (insallah)?

:)

I vote for France, as much as it is my least favorite place I've ever visited. I'd love to see more of it , because I know it all can't be like Paris.

I should vote France (and yeees, Patty, so much more than Paris :) The rest of us is actually nice!) (apart from Marseille), but I'd say go to the wedding, Paris will still be there afterwards... but your protégé's only getting married once.

Well, Amaia, one never knows... after all marriage is wonderfull! The second better than the first, the third better than the second and so one... But I do agree in two points: YES, there is MUCH MORE in France than Paris thanks God... and it is at least his protegee FIRST marriage. I vote Philippines.

l loved France, in particular the Loire Valley. I found the people friendly.i think it helped that l TRIED speaking French whenever possible. Paris is just another big unfriendly city, as most big cities are.

I vote for the Philippines for two reasons:

1. It is closer to Australia (as Kaz pointed out), which means you can visit us.

2. If you get tired of Elaine, you can suss out a new bride.
