Things I Learned in Paris

  • Parisians are not rude as  they’re rumored to be…or else we got really lucky and met a bunch of friendly ones!
  • To dress like a Parisian woman, one only needs a nice jacket, a scarf and leggings with boots. Black tights are an option too.
  • There is a bigger, better cheese selection in the grocery stores compared to the U.S. regardless of the store size.
  • The Metro is FANTASTIC!
  • French keyboards are frustrating. Nearly the same, but certain letters are wrong. Just enough to mess you up. (a, w, m, and the period are most notable)
  • I cannot pronounce French words, but feel fancy when I do.
  • My favorite place is Jardin des Tuileries.
  • Half the city seems to drive a black scooter.
  • When I hear a siren, I immediately picture movie scenes of Nazi Germany. ??? Must be burned in my brain from all the sirens heard in the movies. Ryan says he thinks of Princess Diana’s accident.
  • Nutella is delicious and NOT peanut butter like I kept thinking. I had a tasty Nutella banana crepe in Pigalle next door to Moulin Rouge.

  1. Your siren response is way more sophisticated than mine which would probably be the Bourne movies. So glad you’re having such a great trip and I’m so glad you discovered Nutella and banana crepes. They’re the best!

  2. I’m glad to hear your thoughts about the rudeness myth. I never really believed it anyway. I’m so glad that your experience in Paris was a wonderful one. Can’t wait to see it someday.
