The Earful Tower: Paris

The Earful Tower: Figuring out France with guests who know best. 

Oct 11, 2017

This week it's American journalist, Heidi Moore, who LOVES Paris. While she doesn't live here, she's probably visited more than most tourists ever will, so we had her into the studio to talk about the city. 

Specifically, she explains how NOT to be an American in Paris. If you're not American, you can still learn from this, I promise.

I've typed out the subheadings she brought up, but you'll have to listen in to hear her justify it all. And at the end, tour guide Corey Frye tells us a eyebrow raising story about an American woman who LOOOOVES the Eiffel Tower. His weirdest one yet. 

Heidi's tips to blending in:

1: Learn the importance of saying bonjour

2: Don't choose comfort over style.

3: Don’t smile so much.

4: Don’t waste all your time on the monuments

5: Watch your manners at all times - regardless of your French fluency
