About a week ago, some friends and I went picnicking by the Seine in a very popular area, the kind of which quickly gets crowded. Parisians may have a reputation for not being friendly, but they're really not that bad ;) And in these kind of situations, where people are so close to one another, it's not uncommon for them to start chatting with strangers. Actually, that's even one of the reasons why so many of them go there: to meet new people.
