Posted: 29 Oct 2013
We eat chocolatey manna at the 150-year-old Gerbeaud confectioner’s, trundle past Europe’s largest synagogue, park the truck outside Parliament and meet an old lady who presses an ancient copy of Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment into my hands and insists I take it ‘for karma’. I’m still not absolutely sure why. We find a hotel, somehow inveigle a 7ft Hilux into a 6ft 10in underground car park, meet with our translator/fixer/miniature bodyguard Flora, and sleep.
