1. It’s kind of grimy.
Paris is the City of Light, the fashion capital of the world, the most beautiful city on earth… that also happens to be chock full of urine scented alleys and cobbled streets strewn with (mostly) dog feces. Not so chic, eh? Don’t worry, though, put a filter on it and the people back home will never know.
2. Everything is expensive.
Apart from bread and the bottom-shelf wine at the supermarket, nothing in Paris is cheap. Sure, there are some decent happy hours and several bars with cheap beers all night long, but all the other stuff — rent, conditioner, blueberries — requires a baller bank balance.
