But even in Europe there are differences in manners. When I came back from Switzerland to Holland, I couldn't help noticing how loutish the Dutch can be. That counts for the shops as well as on the...

The food in the restaurant is good, sitting and eating there looking over Paris is really...
Why should the Greeks start so many fires at almost the same moment and so well organized? As Maciamo pointed out; who wants to buy such a ground completely burnt out. Which Greek...
I am almost shy to answer and I fully agree with you. I was silently thinking the same. One can not say such things aloud overhere, I would be called a rightist,which I am not. I'm a Socialist.
France is lavender, wine, le Tour de France, les chansons, very charming people, are so enthousiastic when you speak even just a bit of French.

Thank you Maciamo,

Yes Maciamo, I fully agree with you. And the Statue of Liberty was a gift from France as a seal for the American liberty.

My American friends do send me jokes about the French now and then, and I don't like one of them. they are all very condescending.
