Have you ever used metro in Paris? When I went to Paris we used a lot metro as the means to move. It was very convenient, but I was surprised about a few things. For example, some train has not automatic door, so we had to open the door of train by ourselves sometimes. And amateur musicians suddenly play their instrument in the train, and they ask passengers for some money. I have never experienced these things in Japan. How about you?
And besides, we met a pickpocket group at metro. When we got on the train, some children bumped to us. It was a group of about five children from kids to teenager. I noticed quickly about that, so we guarded our bags from them. So they left from us, and went to next car. Actually I had heard about the fact of children's pickpocket group before the trip, and we didn't have accident, but I was very shocked because they were really children who have pretty face. Exactly, Paris is a city of individualism and free will, and I thought it has two sides of the both of good thing and bad thing.
