It was funny. I was just at a planning symposium, and they had a planner from Paris come to talk.

She got up, turned her power point on and flashed a picture of really really tight single family homes. It kinda looked like inner city Toronto, Chicago, or any number of other North American cities.
She then went on about how so much of Paris is sprawl like in this picture

At the break, some of the planners were talking about how funny Europe thinks single family homes with walkable retail strips and high density, is sprawl, just because it is single family homes.

Was interesting.
