Paris is the city of all cities. I mean... oui, oui, OUI.
A city should allow you to loose yourself and then find yourself, to navigate its streets with ease and freedom. To find exactly what you are looking for when you need it most. It must be clean but not sterile. To allow you to fixate and then detach. To be inspired by its creativity. To inspire others by yours. To reside in it, to eat with diversity of choice, to allow you to feel at home no matter what race, age,religion, financial background, sex, sexual orientation. It must allow you to grow and ultimately to push you to be the best version of yourself.
This is Paris.
And for the record I attribute this ability of Paris to Haussmann and his radical and fantastic urban planing. Primarily the design of this city has allowed it to be come what it is today. Planning is key, and sometimes radical change is necessary.
I have a lot of thought on the state of you Port-of-Spain, not to worry, I'm coming for you. One day..
P.S ; not sure why I can't think of any other title for this post but au pair..
