City #8, February ’14. Paris is a beautiful city, but it’s a pity the Parisians live there, the saying goes. Unfortunately, there is some truth in this. Of course I was able to find some genuinely nice Parisians – the ones I interviewed for example – but in general people were astonishingly arrogant, unfriendly and unhelpfully formal, especially the authorities. This was true of the police, for example, (see the portrait), but also of the French embassy in the Netherlands.
What type of Youropeans? Enough said.
