I lived in France from 1992 to 1997. Back then I was a student of the American School of Paris.
Even after I left France, I visited Paris almost every year.
Everything is delicious and pretty in France, but not always clean and friendly.
Countryside is my favourite, because of nicer weather and people.
The immigrant issues are getting bigger each year and I can see the conflict everywhere. France is both conservative and innovative, and I will keep watching this country with great interest.
