Don't hate us.

It was a weak moment. Paris has been infected. We were incredibly embarrassed. Especially when we were sitting at sidewalk cafes sipping our petits cafes and watching a group of young women (most likely Americans) sipping from the straws of their Caramel Macchiatos while walking around Paris. But I do have to give some "kudos" to Starbucks from bringing "take away" coffee to a city that's never had it before...and that's renowned for having folks sip little coffees on every square inch of the city. I'm sure the French cafe owners want to spit on each Starbucks they see. I don't blame them. I was about to spit on the sidewalk in front of one of them, but Darin quickly pulled me away...
