I love France. My husband is French, my ancestors were from France, and I’ve long been fascinated with the French lifestyle.
I just returned from a visit and learned a few interesting facts that I thought I’d share.
–Did you know that the man who invented the Eiffel Tower also invented the bra?
Strange, I know… but that’s what I’ve been told…
–The night clubs in France serve alcohol until 5:00 am and close at 7:00 am.
Wow, that makes for a tired next day!
–The French eat dinner late.
One night we went out to a popular, trendy restaurant that we had read about. We arrived at 7:00 and the place was empty. Finally around 9:00, people started to show up.
–It’s violates France health laws to eat lunch at your desk.
This is not allowed in the workplace—whatsoever.
–Lunch is holy. The French take AT LEAST one hour for lunch, if not more.
It’s the longest meal of the day and is not to be missed.
-The French are years ahead of Americans when it comes to being eco-friendly.
We could really learn a lot from the French about respecting our environment.
