You know how I am admittedly the world's laziest traveler? Reference previous post about people watching and eating baguettes. It turns out my friend and business partner Kim is the ideal travel buddy for both our first times in Paris. Neither of us like to plan much so our days have been nicely bleeding together. Kim has been doing what she does best - shopping! Of course and why not for the most stylish person I've known since I was 15. I've simply been observing and getting inspired for our new store. The people are entirely too cool for my comprehension.
One thing I've noticed is while Americans (including myself) have a hard time balancing social media and real socialization, Parisians don't seem to have this problem. During our last couple of dinners, both of us sort of gravitate towards our phones during quiet times. Parisians, on the other hand, have no cell phones on the tables or sitting on their laps. They're thoroughly engaged in conversation, even after a four-hour meal! We've been practicing this and naturally found ourselves in profoundly deep (and hilarious!) conversations.
Aside from a boat load of baguettes, I think I'll take this back with me to the states.
