Here, I find myself a little less in awe of the city – and developing Parisian tendencies.
Stephen Clarke’s says in the quite excellent ‘A Year in the Merde‘…
“Paris is, I was beginning to realize, a bit like an ocean. An ocean is a great place to live if you’re a shark. There’s loads of fresh seafood, and if anyone gives you shit you just bite them in half. You might not be loved by everyone, but you’ll be left in peace to enjoy yourself.”
It’s all of the worst clichés – to grow and learn.
But, my tip to anyone coming to Paris would be: Don’t take it personally (whatever your it is). Once you do this, you begin to truly appreciate the city for all its characterful splendour.
Oh, and by the way. I’m giving some new Découvrir La Vie phone cases away, just like the one below. Go to Twitter for more info.
