Youth in Paris

To Learn More French

"...can you imagine bicycling down Champs-Élysées?"

Well, I was in Geneva six month, but then I went up to Paris because I wanted to learn more French now that I was there, so I worked for a French family there for six month, so I was gone a year.
Oh, it was fun. Imagine, can you imagine bicycling down Champs-Élysées? [Chuckles] I did that every day to go to school. I lived in the fancy sixteenth arrondissement and I went in—on Boulevarde. But I saved a lot of money by bicycling because I didn’t have to pay for the subway, or the metro...yeah. So I saved up money so I could buy a Dior scarf in the Dior store. [Chuckles]. Strange how certain things work, right? But, yes, I was very proud of that scarf. Unfortunately, I left it in a taxi, it slid off. That was years ago, but...that’s life. Hope somebody got to—
