Scandinavia and the World
Golden Dawn

Golden Dawn

Paris was very beautiful, but the smell of urine just saturated the place. When I talked about it on the internet a few people responded with, "Even the airport smells like pee :C"
I have no idea what the Frenchmen are up to at night, but it must be fun. XD

Technically the flag on Brother France should be mirrored because we see him from the back, but no doubt people wouldn't notice and keep asking me why it was the wrong way.

There is a law in Paris that is refereed to as "the man's right to pee" that came about, if my information is correct, because of a belief that it is unhealthy for a male to hold their bladder. My friend that discovered this bit of trivia said that he was talking in Paris and this guy whipped it out and started peeing right in front of a group of nuns, being Catholic and having American sensibilities about human anatomy there was a touch of outrage on his face. And I being Catholic and understanding that everyone pees and has some sort of genitalia found the story quite funny.

I'm French, living in Paris.

True indeed, the smelt of Paris is not so good. However, it has many reasons.
Of course, some people pee.
But there are other facts like : the metro itself, the cleaning products, the underground's sulfur,...
So even without the few rude people peeing, it would smell almost the same :/

Hungarian reporting in.
Lived there. Totally agree. This post is 100% accurate. When asked what's Paris like, I usually answer jokingly, "Oh you know, pretty much like Vienna or Budapest, only you can put out your junk and take a pee, like anywhere".

Seriously though, really awesome city. Go visit it. And dear Humon, if you liked Paris, come visit Budapest sometime. I'm sure there's like a lot of us here who would gladly buy you a beer and show you around and stuff. It would be hilarious to get to know how a Nord gal sees us.

As a French too, I have to admit that Paris is not the most "Flower Scented" city of the country.
I mean: the biggest city in France, with so much bars, cafés and nightclub... Somehow, what you drink has to come out a day or another.
So, then, many places smell like pee.

But we got the same in other cities: you REALLY don't want to cross the way of the drunk students on a Thursday evening. At best, you just get some sound (and a fresh breath of vodka), at worst...
Well, your shoes are much better with a little coating of freshly regurgitated Whisky-cola.

But still, the country is "clean". Just... Don't look at it too closely.
Ah, the Latin way of life.
