It's now officially Sunday, and I should probably at least try and sleep soon.

HOWEVER...Since I am incredibly noisy I would be interested to hear where you all live, and what the best thing about that place is.

I can neither confirm nor deny that I might use the responses to help plan future holidays.

I think I've mentioned a few times that I'm in Paris. For me, the best thing about Paris is the cafe/restaurant culture. Not the food, but the fact that the vast vast majority of places will have seating outside, sometimes simply on the pavement. Even a large number of cheap places will have a small awning with heaters, and it's very common to have people eating and drinking outside even in the dead of winter (especially since you can't smoke inside). There's something very lovely about sitting at your (tiny) table with your (tiny) chairs, drinking your wine or eating whilst in your coats. It's definitely not something that isn't very common in London.

What do you like most about where you are?

EDIT: Added benefit: you get neighbours repeatedly making noises exactly like a donkey at 0500. Why? Well why not.
