My experience in Paris was exactly the opposite of the one I have in NY, which I can now call home. Paris was really tough on me, and very difficult. I was on my own most of the time and it was a very introverted experience for me. This doesn't necessarily mean it was a bad experience, as it forced me to do a lot of self-discovery and allowed me to study and read and walk endlessly around and observe all the time. It is also where I started taking pictures. New York is the opposite, as it is so much about the people, its crazy energy, continuous movement, and the endless possibilities passing in front of you. New York forced me to become extroverted and interact with the outside.
