|Paris from Montmarte|
|Le Louvre from the sky|
I love it here, you may have guessed. I love way the French are so open to life and laughter. I love the flowers in the window boxes and the random parks that seem to call to you to take a load off. I love the fast pace of the streets, the slow pace of the market, and the way the city has no problem closing down for a month so everyone can vacation. I love that there are 2 months out of the year everything is on sale. I love that the city doesn’t really wake up until 11 and if you are out before that it is like having it all to yourself. I love that I can go and see a movie in an outdoor park and enjoy a bottle of wine with my friends. I love that they ship in sand to make a beach along the Seine every summer. I love that a proper meal takes three hours and that the service staff are rarely in a big rush. I love the way the French language sounds when coming from little kids. I love that you can be in the country in 30 minutes for a calm day outside the city.
