Standing in Line

Posted on Updated on

often we discover that the person who was behind us in line, is now in front of us

There is much to be gained by exposure to a different (often multiple) cultures
and as a tourist, you will be exposed to lines of people in many situations.

There is no shortage of lines:
there are good line and there are bad lines

Bad Lines:
Lines for concerts and the opera
Lines boarding the plane
Lines at Le Louvre
Lines buying tickets

More civil lines:
Lines at customs
Sometimes a line at check-in
Lines at the Boulangerie
Lines at Notre Dame

Frequently we find that the concept of an orderly line does not exist in many situations in Paris. And, often discover that the person who was behind us in line, is now in front of us. You have to be vigilent, or better yet, you have to let go (and not care if that couple find a way to get in front of you)
