We often compare trophy cities (London, Sydney, Paris, Tokyo, etc.) of the world to San Francisco, and in my humble opinion, we’re not quite trophy, but on our way. If we got rid of Chris Daly, maybe we could get there. Regardless, a reader sends us this quote and link:
“And we thought prices were expensive here! A neat flash-based map of Ile-de-France property prices (that is Paris and its suburbs). Price rises of over 100% in the past five years aren’t uncommon, it seems. Click on the circle in the middle, that’s central Paris. The colors speak for themselves.”
C’est vrai, mon ami. C’est vrai! Ce n’est pas la meme pour San Francisco, but we could be there in a few years.
For the French challenged: “Variation sur”=variation over.
