  1. The sheer variety of people on the streets made me realize how cosmopolitan Paris can be in comparison to smaller cities like my current home base, San Francisco.

    I thought San Francisco is a very diverse city. It’s amazing that even San Francisco pales in comparison to Paris.

    My perfect moment came today when an Indian-looking couple asked me for directions in French. I had no clue what they said, but I answered in Hindi and got the job done. They were from Mauritius, incidentally.

    Amazing again! I have a friend of Indian ethnicity in Mauritius who says that they don’t speak any Indian language at home.

    1. It was an astounding moment for me personally, for I assumed that they knew the language and which by sheer luck they did. Regardless, I have been enjoying Paris for what it is, rather than focus on what it is not. Much easier to love a city that way.

  2. Sounds great. As always, you find gold in the dross. About jet lag and aging, so-called… all the years of observing and thinking have expanded your mind’s capacity. It becomes harder to slow it down, to confine it to its former boundaries. Peace.
