That sounds great! Not sure my two would, but it's worth a try.
Growing up in Paris sounded good too - I've visited a couple of times and it has a wonderful atmosphere. At the moment I live in London, which is brilliant for history too, lots of old houses and so on. Plus a whole bunch of museums. Excellent for research.
I bet it is! The Tower of London is on my list of must see in the next couple of years.
