Mattias' Journey to France

Current Location

Paris, France

Hi, I'm Mattias, and I'm originally from Santiago, Chile. I'm so excited for you to join me as I study ancient watercolor painting techniques, plant science and scientific illustration in France!


I've just arrived in Paris from where I currently live in Bogotá, Colombia. These are my observations and first impressions of the city so far!


Since I moved to Paris, I have learned about how French culture is different from American culture. I have learned to see past some of the stereotypes Americans have of French people!

Field Notes

People from all over the world live in Paris. So you can get to know one of these people, I interviewed my friend Kai, an American who has been living in Paris for the last nine years.


Join me in exploring some of the exhibits at the Muséum national d'histoire naturelle (Paris' natural history museum).
