Je suis Paris
A colleague and friend sent this to me. As many have noted, going out for a drink with friends has quickly turned into an affirmation of French values this weekend in Paris, and this is exactly right.
The translation is:
I am on a (café or restaurant) terrace
And having a beer
While listening to music
Who are not the same color as me
Nor the same religion as me
And we remake the world.
[Refaire le monde, remaking the world, is one of those specifically French expressions that is used to describe when a group of friends/family stay up all night over the table, drinking more wine and talking about everything, which often includes politics etc. You “remake the world”.]
I am Paris.
