Respirer = the Breathe
One of the French habits I’ve picked up is letting my apartment “breathe.” The summer I worked as a nanny, every day we’d open the windows of the house in order to air it out. It turns out that most French people keep this habit year round, even when it’s chilly out. I think living in 12m2 has forced me to adopt the habit naturally.
This is what my dossier of French paperwork is currently looking like, so remembering to breathe these days is more important than ever.
Oh, and if anyone hears of any small, affordable apartments in Paris, please let me know! I’m on the hunt for that too!
