I LOVED the film Paris Je t’Aime.  A lot.  So much so that (I bought the DVD and) afterwards I went to Paris.  And then gave the film to Mark and Leanne to accompany their trip there this summer.

This spoils the film a bit, but is the final scene from the 16e arrondissement… from someone else’s upload.  Other neighbourhood’s vignettes capture Paris better (IMHO) but this one captures something that makes it a favourite, too.

It reminds me: why I like learning French, what Paris has to offer, and…..what traveling is all about.  Perspective. (And overcoming?)


Side note:  I loved New York I Love You, too.  … and watched that one AFTER traveling to NYC.  Can’t wait to get there this summer, too.
