I have been to about twenty different countries in my life.
I have never been to a country with a more anti-American sentiment in my life. I must admit I am surprised at how much they currently dislike Americans!
Another interesting thing, American and French keyboards are different. They are similar; but, they are different. Typing this is NOT fun.
I think the most interesting thing about France so far is converting money. I came over with some trvellers checks in Euros. NO ONE will accept them. Three small branch banks would not cash them, several stores, bars, etc. We had to go to a MAJOR French bank!
