In the open air, you'll now be able to connect your laptop at the Parvis of the Hôtel de Ville, at the Parc des Buttes Chaumont, Parc Monceau, the Jardin des Halles, Place des Vosges, Parc Georges Brassens and Parc Montsouris. In any one of 44 libraries, Espace des Blancs Manteaux, the Musée d'Art Moderne and the Maison de l'Emploi du 13ème Arrondissement are just a few of the municipal sites where you can surf away, free. For more complete information and a full list of sites, consult http://www.wifi.paris.fr "
Patricia writes on being an Expat:"... As the years went by, I also realized that the feeling of being foreign and other, transcends even race. You are not part of their (French) culture. It doesn't matter who you are or of what origin you are. You're either French (in your head and behavior), or not. When I began to see that, I began to identify myself as an expat. The sum of being an American who lives in Paris, an African-American trying to find roots here, minus not being French - but seeing life internationally - on a large scale and permanently, equals my personal experience of being an expat."
