One night in Paris changed Rick Salomon

As a former exchange student... it DOES change your life. It's a huge shift in perspective, and in tolerance of other cultures. It's hard to explain, because you're there, learning the language (or slang), culture, education style, and more. It's no longer a binary world.

I'd argue that 1963 was more of a life changer

I'm guessing your experience differed greatly from hers.

She was the daughter of a wealthy Manhattan trader and socialite.   A year in France is what all young debutantes do.

Well... Yes. :) We did stay here for a week, though (the students and orientation staff had the run of the place. We'd play hide and seek in the castle, with electricity off)

I love reading about the culture of Paris in the post-WWII era, it sounds like heaven.  If I could choose to live any life, it would be as an American expat in Paris in the early 1950s.

This

The chick really wasn't that interesting aside from the Kennedy angle. And I don't mean to go full "sharp knees" here but I've always found her so strange looking. Like uncanny valley, looks-like-Sid-from-Ice-Age-and-Arya-h​ad-a-baby strange looking

Lastly, and most importantly, I think I just plain resent her for encouraging the whole "Camelot" myth building about her husband and their family. This aint a monarchy and your husband was an alcoholic womanizer who cheated on you constantly, Jackie. And in case there was ever any doubt about what she valued most in life, take a farking look at the human thumb she married after JFK
