It’s four weeks now that I live and work here in Paris. And a little to our surprise, it is not as weird as we thought it would be. In fact we feel at home here. Yes, of course, there are differences between France and The Netherlands, in a lot of things. And yes, the french ways are mostly obscure for us, but it is not bothering us to the point that we want to go back home crying. In fact it is amusing and expected. There are stories to tell, but most already have been told. One particularly good version is A Year in the Merde by Stephen Clarke. It describes very accurately, and in a very funny way, how France works.
Personally I think that one of the beautiful things of submerging yourself in another culture is to experience a different take/view on life and learn from it. For that matter, I can already say that moving here was a very good decision.
