an illustrated journey of an american in paris
Hi Diane, ah that’s wonderful! There’s much more to come. All the best from Paris, jkw
HI Bonnie, it’s the button inside almost every Parisian courtyard to open the front door. It’s often difficult to find and many new expats don’t know about it. Thanks for reading! jkw
Btw, what is a “porte” (so I’ll know when I get to France)?
David Lebovitz forwarded your blog to us. I love it; illustrations are hilarious. I’m a new fan.
Reblogged this on My Daily Pictures, Words & Music.
OH my goodness! That 50 Cent/Lil Kim reference just brought me back to life. Thanks so much! jkw
Thanks so much. 9 hard-fought years of experience. 🙂
Haha! This is one of the first “X things I learned in France” lists that I completely agree with. You perfectly captured what it’s really like…. especially Porte Purgatory 😂
Beautifully done. I love the baguette illustration. I didn’t believe my husband that a magic wand was une baguette magique in French. He learned magic wand in English a few years back in the Disney Store when shopping for our niece. He asked for a magic stick (when the 50 Cent/Lil Kim song was popular) and the sales guy laughed.
Made me smile.
