J'adore Paris sous la pluie...

not exactly. Aimer is used for like and love..when you say i love you it's je t'aime. And by putting bien after aimer it is really really love. and yes you can say sous la pluie as welll, i just thought quand il pleut rhymed better.

Raw- check my post i edited. I didn't think it works but then i rmemeber it from a song so i changed it.

and i googled both j'adore paris, et j'aime paris and both work. I was basing my j'aime from "Paris, je t'aime" the movie. so i know for a fact you can use it.

I have a language question:

In Dutch, there is an expression for feeling embarrasment because of another person's behavior, "plaatsvervangende schaamte" (lit.: replaced embarrasment/shame), the only translation i could come up with to English which seemed to make sense, was "embarrasment by proxy". the other person acts in an embarrassing way without shame, yet you feel very embarrassed that he/she acts so...

Is there a real English term for being embarrassed because of what someone else does or says?
