I discovered plenty my first time in Paris… but still learned more on round two.
*There are more pigeons than in Italy. Fat pigeons… and lost pigeons.
*Drivers look at you and only see a moving target.
*When in a group… do NOT rush and jump into a Metro train with closing doors, thus separating yourself from your friends.
*That I need to learn what “terroirs” are… and how they go with wine.
*Children are not welcome ANYWHERE in Paris… except gardens apparently. I never noticed before, but they’re scarce!
*I am willing to sacrifice a hand to frostbite to get the perfect photo.
*The French like to drink everything out of wine glasses.
*Parisians really do sauces, desserts, and quiches brilliantly.
*Finally… I learned I still cannot pronounce French words.
