Anglophile

Ok, I’m starting to wonder.
In a city with seemingly loads of Anglophones, why do I not have any Anglophone friends in Paris? Running through my rather sparse list of friends, they’re either francophone, that is, have French as their native language, or have some other language (such as Japanese) as their native language.

We went to a Canadian themed bar tonight where there were just groups of English speakers scattered about. There were loads of them! Where the heck do they come from and how come I seem to meet so few English speakers in Paris! Is there some sort of “secret club” where they all meet once a week, and I’m just not cool enough to join?
