Interesting comments from a couple visiting Paris. Their English is not perfect , but good enough to get the gist of their complaint
It turns out that the second saying is now relevant in the literal sense: the capital of France is not similar to the one that is known to you
"We went there not so long ago, just go for the weekend. We bribed the price of tickets, unusually low, but we were not in Paris for more than 10 years. We decided to refresh impressions, again inhale the French romance. The fact that the lowest price for Air France had alerted us, but nothing like this. "
The flight was fine, then we boarded a train that took us to the center, and it was there that we experienced the first shock: not only was the Northern station all littered with debris, there was not a white Frenchman!
