"Paris is a city of cafés, you will often come across a block where the cafés follow one another without interruption on Boulevard Montmartre, for example. In winter, as in summer, the terraces are crowded with coffee and sweet water tasters... but what attracts the visitor's attention in Paris is the Parisian woman, the woman. And even the Parisian one is not authentic, but usually the foreigner from Vienna, Hungary, or some other nation..."
