10 Things That Are “Just So French”

When one of my long-time friends (notice I didn’t say “old”) came to visit in Uzes, she’d say: “That’s just so French!”

It became a favorite sayiing to the two of us during her stay. Here are ten things that say “that’s just so French” to me. See if you agree!

  1. I’ve eater escargot but they do kind of weird me out. Now, on the other hand, La Vie En Rose looks like a good reason to visit France.

  2. You’ve hit just about all my favorite things. Although I quit smoking almost 40 years ago, I still have the urge to pick one up when I’m in France. Despite all the Défense de Fumer, they still love their cigarettes.

    How are the French lessons coming?
