An American Twenty-Something in Paris
Like with any iconic city, one cannot help but be predisposed to certain images and expectations. New York evokes flashes of the Empire State Building and watching the ball drop on New Year’s Eve. Sydney recalls the smell of the ocean air while surfing Bondi Beach or staring up at the Opera House. London brings to mind Big Ben in the rain, snug in boots and a pea coat.
And as for Paris? Well, that goes without question. Both romance and the Eiffel Tower are the trademarks for which the French capital is revered.
