Paris - Have your own Midnight in Paris experience!. Born in the Midwest, I've lived in Paris for four years. Having recently finished a Master's in Contemporary Philosophy at The Sorbonne, I'll be beginning my PhD work in October (also at The Sorbonne). I live in the neighborhood we'll be visiting and have a love for Paris and its history that began when I was 9 years old. It's a passion I love to share!
