Emily takes her lunch at the nearby Jardin du Palais Royal, after being snubbed for lunch with her co-workers. There she meets Mindy who becomes her closest friend in Paris. Mindy is watching two French children and speaks to them in Chinese. The park becomes a regular lunch spot for the two and where Mindy sings for Emily for the first time.

One of my favorite spots at Palais Royal is the Colonnes de Buren, permanent art installation of black and white columns by artist Daniel Buren. In one of the montages in Emily in Paris, you see Emily and Mindy at this art installation.
