At least 20 people this summer -- most of them Japanese -- have suffered from the disorder after realizing Paris isn't what they expected As tourist season here in Paris winds to a close and the air once again becomes crisp, fresh, and new, we must unfortunately acknowledge that it does not end without a few casualties. Yes, this summer, like the ones that have come before it, has claimed at least 20 victims of a very particular affliction: Paris Syndrome .
