    Ok, it seems like I am one of the few members here who live in France and I am a foreigner.

    I am not white. I often get people looking at me here with great interest, (especially Children they like to stare at me, sometimes touch me as I look different from them!) Their mothers would applologised. I guess a person like me is rare here, most of their immigrants are from North Africa or are Asian refugees.

    I think the best part about living in France is their good healthcare and free education.

    I am also a big fan of high class dining, and French fashion. As I travel a lot living here is good for travel as there are lots of places in France to visit and there are lots of countries near by that we can visit by car or by train.

    The quality of food here is also high, no hormone injected meat, and as the French people are very fussy about their foods the quality of foods is really high.

    Chocolates here taste very different than the ones sold in Australia even though they are the same brand! Coffees here are small and refine, small is good, I like small.

    Travelling and living (long-term, not just a few months) in a country are two very different things ! Most of the time a country will appear more pleasant to short-term visitors than to people who live there and have to deal with the local businesses (telecommunication and construction companies being among the worst, in general), the inefficient administration, and so on.

    Unfortunately I do not know France, but my father knows Paris. And I think since she saw Parisian girls he is not the same.

    Cote d'Azur for me. I know it only from TV, but love it already.
    How much is a house with sea view there?
    Be wary of people who tend to glorify the past, underestimate presence, and demonize the future.

    Crosby, Here I am going to tell you that France is a nice city to having fun. I have visited there two times in my life and collected very nice moments in my mind also in my camera. I think you also should try to visit there as soon you can go.
