I finally let Jack into the secret over dinner (Pizza) on Friday. We set off to the Paris exhibition centre early and arrived just at opening time and we amongst the first to get in. In hindsight we should have sprinted straight to the Ferrari, Aston Martin, Maserati area in Hall 1 as by the time we got there it was like a slow moving scrum. However we managed to worm our way to the front and we were slowly pushed around the display perimeter.
We ended up spending around five and half hours wondering through the seven halls and still didn't get to see everything.. the crowds were building up (they hadn't been so bad in the morning) and I convinced Jack that it was time to split. The best part (for me) was listening to Jack describe the show to his mum that evening on the phone, no detail was lost as he replayed the days events backs. Here are a few snapshots of our day.
