America’s history is anchored in the pioneer experience and perhaps we are still a bit like cowboys, going out to discover. In France people are more focused on life. That is still a big difference.
This is the commonality that Ma Vie Française readers have with our readers. I’ve talked about this through the guide for years. There’s a myth, a fantasy about Paris, which we bring with us. It’s the most feminine and sensual of French cities. It’s a classically beautiful city, the buildings are made from local limestone and they aren’t high, which gives a completely different feeling. It’s easy on the eye.
