I have gone into this as a wide eyed child at Christmas. Full of wonder and awe. I observe the smallest cultural differences to the largest. Such as the French not having Dryers-due to high cost of electricity. Skinny toilet seats at the Universitaire that you can’t sit on. Toilet paper dispensed like a kleenex with leaves imprinted. The French get 5 weeks minimum of paid vacation per year regardless of their job or how long they have been there. Can you imagine how less stressed and more healthy as Americans we would be if we took that time? Nobody has air conditioning. The towns and old buildings replicate the paintings we see. I’m falling in love with France.
