Things I Love About Paris
I just had my French class at my husband's office. He works for an International organization. I love attending class because it is so interesting and often I am the only American in the group. Today we had 14 people in the class from: Spain, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Poland, Czech Republic, Italy, the Philippines and the US. I love living in a European city where I get to meet people from so many places, with different perspectives on life and varying opinions of the US. For example, today we talked about recycling and what each person's country does to recycle. In some European countries they charge for each plastic bag you use for your groceries. They said it really lowered plastic bag consumption. I didn't tell them that in the US, not only do they give you the plastic bags, the cashier actually bags your groceries. Such a luxury!

Personally, I can't get into drinking bottled water, because I think it is ridiculous to pay that much money for water.
