A love letter to Paris

The Financial Times’ former Paris correspondent pens a love note to the city. If you, like at least one of us, is a “Paris person” and not a “London person,” you’ll want to read this morning’s Expat Lives column in the Financial Times (paywall) about one of our favourite cities in the world: “Sundays in Paris were a window on to an era that London, Mexico City and other capitals I know well have long abandoned. It took us at least a month to adjust to the closed shops and the almost ghostly hush that settles on much of the city from about lunchtime. Once acclimatized, though, I grew to love Sundays more than any other day. … All the while, Guillaume and his PDS, under the semi-permanent threat of closure because of complaining neighbours, spoke volumes to me about how creative, different, occasionally irreverent and frustratingly unpredictable but ultimately irresistible Paris can be.”
