Les Secrets des Parisiens
I have to admit I’m not really sure how people with full-time jobs live and function in Paris (or anywhere, really). I’m thankful I’m a freelancer with a flexible schedule because I spend half my life running around collecting documents and such. While looking deceptively like American culture on the outside, there are so many subtle differences that make my life here so Parisian.
My Little Paris has a new book Les Parisians, based on their fun video series, Ce que Disent les Parisiens. And just based on their fun little promo video, I can tell you so many of the things they mention – for better or for worse – are so true:
- Cozy = miniscule and animated = noisy and atypical = shower in the kitchen [so TRUE!]
- Waiting in epic lines to see apartments
- The corking of 10+ bottles of champagne at a party
- Dancing on rooftops
