Paris - Post Report Question and Answers

Lots of expats. Overall good morale. - May 2022

Huge expat community. Overall people love living here. But you have to make an effort to start building your friend circle like at other large urban posts. - Aug 2015

Huge expat community but very disparate, so hard to gauge overall morale. I'd be surprised if it weren't pretty good. - Feb 2015
