Quick Tip: Meetup.com
Just a quick tip. I can't remember if I mentioned it, but if I did, it probably wasn't anything more than a name drop. Meeting people in Paris is hard. In America wherever you are you can just go up to whomever and make conversation. But not so much here. A friend of mine got mad at me for doing it. Like it was some societal sin.
But I don't go to uni here, and I don't work here, so my options are very, very limited. However I found Meetups gets the job done. I had never heard of it before because we don't need it where I'm from, but if you're coming over join a few groups and hopefully make some new friends.
