Living in Paris can be rewarding, but it has its moments of stress, too. Like when the guy fails to show up for the 3rd appointment in a row to put in your phone or hook up your cable. (Word of advice? Don’t bother waiting around past the window; if he didn’t show up by 6, he isn’t coming.) There are lots of books on the subject of living in France. They cover such topics as moving your belongings, looking for work, buying a house or signing a lease, running your own business, negotiating the legal labyrinth of French regulation, and so on. This is not one of those books.
This is a blog to tell you how to actually live in Paris – how to do laundry, where to go for what you need, what to expect when you least expect it, when to get help, and who to get it from. It assumes you’ve already done all the stuff any responsible human being would do before moving to a foreign country for any period of time and gets down to the nitty gritty involved in actual daily living…the stuff everyone takes for granted and no one thinks to tell you.
I hope you find it helpful.
