Respect to NBC japanese tourists recently suffer from the “Paris syndrome”. Basically these japanese tourists got a idillyc view of Paris and its inhabitants and get very disappointed because of the rudeness of Paris, transportation, people, etc…
So are we too rude or are they oversensitive????
First is: I am tired of this question ;-)
2nd: there are many Paris, I mean the touristical city (Le Louvre, le Sacré Coeur, le Chateau de Versailles, etc…), the business Paris (definitly a tourist should not try the metro ligne 1 at 8:00am when this lign is overloaded but all the people going to work in La Defense: you can trust me, there is not that much smile in the people face…). The 2 cities are the same but the first one is more happy and smilly face that the second one.
Last of all, never heard of this story in the French news!
