“J’ai deux amours…Mon pays et Paris.” – Josephine Baker
(I have two loves: my country and Paris.)
The word “Paris” is often synonymously used with the words: romanticism, love, and paradise. Paris holds a lot of preconceived idealisms. When I think of Paris, my thoughts immediately go to midnight strolls, the bright lights emanating from the Eiffel Tower, and quaint coffee shops. I think Paris is more than that. Paris is also a mentality. It’s when one goes to Paris with the mentality that he or she will find love, be reckless, and roam around the city. That’s what Paris is about and I believe that is breathtaking.
