a New Zealander’s take on Paris

I stumbled across this video and thought it was well done. I agree with everything she says. When expat Parisian residents hear someone say that Paris is the city of glamour, romance and love, we want to roll our eyes (as we step in dog poop on the sidewalk, fight off pickpocketers, or dodge teargas from riot police) and say ‘Oh puleeezz.’

Living in a city for a long time and visiting it as a tourist are two entirely different experiences.
