Consulting poll: Have you been to France?

By | November 20, 2015

What a tough week for France and the World. 

Why people (terrorists = may not be people) create pain, hurt, death . . . in the name of anything . . . I am not sure. Sadly, it just makes it harder for everyone. Xenophobia spreads. Hurt begets hurt. Terrorism is cowardice. Driven by desperation. Alienation.

So many things from France to admire, enjoy, and celebrate: Descartes. Voltaire. Renoir. Cezanne. Matisse. Gaugin. Degas. Debussy. Brie. Camembert. Comte’. Coq au Vin. Crepes.  French Bread. Salad Nicoise. Croque Monsieur. Eclair. Croissant. Pont Neuf. Coco Chanel. Carla Bruni. Medecins sans Frontieres. Cartier. Hermes. Louis Vuitton. Club Med. Clarins. Versailles. Seine. Rive Gauche. Tour de France.

Everyone on Facebook shows these three colors.

I went to France once, loved it. My wife has been twice. How about you?

    This year we went to Paris again and I loved that, ’cause it’s so different in many aspects. I like the fact that in this globalised world they’ve managed to stay true to their culture, sometimes even quirky but still unique. Maybe it’s unintended, maybe it’s simply their ignorance but I think they got it right.
    Unfortunately the same cannot be said about the French cuisine, mainstream restaurants are serving mainly burgers and pasta these days, decent french soup and other quirky dishes are mostly restrained to good restaurants.

      Great review about staying true to what makes it great. Culture, food, quirky authenticity. It has been 20+ years since I went and honestly, I have no idea which arrondissement I want to start with. Too many to choose from.
