Paris, the american way


Un Américain à Paris..?
(An American in Paris)

If you are arriving Paris from the west side via the river Seine
then you meet, in almost New Yorker way, the Statue of Liberty
a copy of the french gift to the american people
created by Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi
the french and the american loves and “hates” each other at the same time
just like an old married couple
the french will not admit that they are fascinated by the Big Apple
in the same way as the americans will not confess their fascination of Paris

Il n’y a que deux endroits au monde
où l’on puisse vivre heureux: chez soi et à Paris
*There are only two places in the world
where we can live happy: at home and in Paris*
(Ernest Hemmingway – american author and journalist)

No flying machine will ever fly from New York to Paris
(Orville Wright – american inventor and pilot)
