Dear Miss Meg,
i live in Paris and most of what you said about
Paris bandwidth and people is almost wrong. I think you didn't prepare
well your stay in Paris... You can now have a DSL connection for 30 Euros/month. I admit that it's not
worth it to buy a DSL connection for just one month
but i am sure it's pretty the same in wonderful US lands. And let me tell you something,
i spent a month in NYC and i can tell you that people are more aggressive and "pushy" than here.
But i admit NYC is not US. And maybe if you had this feeling about people here it's because you don't speak french very well. It's like in every big city, people don't waste time trying to understand what you say...
The only thing i agree is the weather in Paris:
it's rainy and cold, you should have come in August it's warm and all Parisians are gone.
I guess you just had this romantic vision of Paris. Paris is a great city with a lot of things to do and see but it's also a big city with all the negative aspects....
I think you should travel more often and you'll
see that life is not like what they show you on TV, you know they have computers and electricity
in Afghanistan too.
A very upset french guy...
