Thanks for sharing!

As if I wasn't self-conscious enough speaking in French . . .

The receptionist in the main lobby called my office to announce my student’s arrival and to find out what floor I was on. Apparently, when she hung up the receiver she turned to my student and asked if I was a man.

Hey, It's also difficult for the french to smell tabacco after going out in a restaurant, walk in dog shit, and see graffiti on public library walls. But imagine how it was to leave in US after 9/11. French bashing was not the best of US. Enjoy the best of Paris and forget the worst.
