Heureux


When in Paris, I want to see FRENCH not anglais.

As hard as it may be to believe it is chic to use English in Paris. Just as French marks American establishments and products as elite, English seems to have the same use here. People will use the slightest excuse to speak English to you.

Your blogging sister, Connie :)

I agree with you V. One of the mysteries of travel is missing when only English can be heard and seen.

It's like going to Japan and you see English that makes no sense. Shopping bag English. Now here's English on a shopping bng!

Je suis d'accord. V!

French shop people know it's easier to sell something in Paris if they use English.

Aww, but it's so pretty! :) Language aside, it's a gorgeous photo. Maybe they could have named their stores 'Appy so at least it had a French sound to it. :) Bon weekend to you and sweet Meepsie, dear V.

That is rather odd, and i would find it disappointing too.

Louise said...

I agree, it's disappointing. I mainly saw signs "Don't Touch".

French Girl in Seattle has a great post about the use of English in modern French: "Franglais"...

Well, aren't YOU a fussy one.

Pretty.

It's the same here, but in reverse. A French friend of mine came here as a girl and was delighted that it was so easy to get American bread. That took me by surprise, then I realized I was the same about French bread.

Me too, but I still love these HAPPY flowers.
