I wouldn’t want to visit Paris again.

Why?

I don’t want to stereotype anyone, but 99.9% of Parisians we’ve encountered were so rude it shocked us.

My close friends would know that I never enjoy this type of food and will never willingly choose a restaurant that serves this type of heavy and effortless food.

But, we were in Paris.

Paris ain’t got no littlesheep or boiling point so I had to deal with it like a big girl.

I just want a bowl of green tea shaved ice from class of 302. Is it too much to ask for?

Gotta do some touristy stuff since we are in Paris.

Ending the meal with delicious mango!

By the way,

Our plane back to LA (Air Tahiti) had a technical difficulty while it was departing..

A bird flew into the 4th engine so they decided to make an emergency landing back in Paris. They provided us a crappy hotel room located in the airport and scheduled another flight for us, but how this airline people handled it was so unprofessional,rude,and arrogant.

Although it was a plane to LA from Paris, the representative refused to explain the situation in English in front of 200 passengers. They explained a simple instruction in French for an hour and made non-French speakers wait for a long time when the only sentence they had to say was “Flight will be rescheduled for tomorrow”

A lot of non-french passengers including us were furious and demanded an explanation but the airline representative rudely said “hold on” and read off 200 passenger names on the list in French before making an English announcement.

Not only that, when we asked the bus driver a very simple question in English, the bus driver instantly gave us a dirty look and said something in French first then told us to say Bonjour first if we want to converse in English.

Are you kidding me?

I think it’s polite to say certain simple words in a particular country’s dialect while visiting, but how do you demand a tourist to have a full-fledge conversation in your native language when your country relies heavily on tourism?

Seriously, unpleasant incidents like this happened way too often in Paris and it is a HUGE FACTOR for me to make a decision to not visit that country ever again.

GOOD BYE PARIS YOU JUST LOST A BIG SHOPPER!

Anyways, we decided to come back to the city from the airport for a night and found this cool hookah place.

The owner of this hookah place was the nicest Parisian we met during this trip and it almost made us want to cry!

The prettiest hookah bowl of my life! Can you believe this?

He even made a pretty complementary cocktail for us.

Anyways,

Paris was beautiful minus the people.

My next vacation destination for this winter would be…

Bali, Japan, and China!

Xoxo,

Eriko
