Paris Culture

In this episode of Passport to Europe, Samantha Brown finds herself in one of the most romantic cities in the world - Paris! Samantha quickly discovers that the key to unlocking the jewels of the city is in understanding its people, and knowing that a simple "bonjour", "merci", and a little bit of French will go a long way in embracing the culture of France and in turn being welcomed by its people. Samantha has fun trying to immerse herself into the Parisian way of life; instead of a regular hotel, she books herself into an apartment in the Latin Quarter to really get a feel for the neighborhoods of Paris, she'll shop the street markets and buy some wine and cheese along the Rue Montorgueil, and she'll visit a little known museum with an impressive collection of art that is said to have started the whole Impressionistic movement. Samantha also finds out that going to a Paris fashion show is easier than you think - she attends a runway show at Printemps - one of Paris' leading department stores and discovers what the latest styles are in this fashion conscious city, and by meeting up with a personal shopper Samantha tries to discover what Parisians know about fashion that we don't. When it comes to sampling French cuisine, Samantha takes us to a bistro for the ins and outs of dining in Paris. Samantha's experience in the City of Lights is trés bien!
