Will we come back to Paris next September?
God willing, as my grandmother would say.
We always say we will go somewhere else, but then we book our trip and look forward to the next time.
We love it so much, here in this beautiful city.
We think about it when we are working, or just lying still.
How much we enjoyed the food, the sites, the new friends we made along the way.
Don't believe all the negative hype you may hear.
That "Parisians are snobs" (there is some truth to that!), and that "they hate Americans" (no they don't!).
That all the food is "so rich with a ton of heavy sauces" (what do you live in the 1980's??)
You get what you put into an experience.
If you are nice and polite and try and speak the language, then how can someone not respond with at least some kindness?
If you are an obnoxious, arrogant, loud person ordering your "decaf cappuccino" or "California Cab" while in Paris, then you get what you deserve.
That goes without saying wherever you are.
See the sites, sit at a cafe and sip some good French wine.
Eat the best bread and butter of your life.
Walk streets off the beaten path.
Admire the gorgeous architecture and museums.
and look at the most beautiful and stylish women (if that's your thing).
It's been a great trip, even better than last year.
Thank you for coming along and for all your nice comments throughout.
And to the lovely anonymous commenter who hates me and my "boring hairstyle" (but obsessed with reading my blog):
please, get a hobby.
See you back in Jersey.
