I loved my visit to Paris. While I went feeling a bit intimidated by the city, I left feeling comfortable and wanting to stay longer. I hope I get a chance to return now that I feel more confident about getting around. It's a clean city, at least the parts that I saw. There are trash containers on every block and these lovely recycling bins for empty wine bottles, etc. are everywhere☺
Many Parisians speak some English so if you make an effort to learn a few French phrases they'll be happy to assist you. I didn't run into any of the arrogant French that I've read about. Although one young sales clerk in a department store who told me I was shopping in the wrong clothing section as the styles I was looking at were for younger women came pretty close.
