Dejw cheer up
I got 7, clearly I am a failure ... haha! Oh yeah well....where are the questions like "have you ever opened a bank account in France...have you ever bought internet in France...have you ever dealt with immigration/OFII in France..."
I get 6Questions like:
1. Have you ever used a "toilette à la turque".. (aka the giant's footsteps!)
2. Have you ever tried "tête de veau"?
3. Have you ever driven a Citroen DS?
4. Walked the streets of Paris at night with your lover?
5. Been up the Eiffel Tower?
6. Eaten more than a dozen oysters at one sitting?
7. Been to a traditional French wedding?
8. Stayed up until dawn in the streets of Paris?
9. Have you ever been dumped in Paris?
10. Been to a Bal dansant in Montmartre?
11. Have you ever camped in France?
12. Ridden a motorcycle in France?
And last but not least:
13. Have you ever kissed a Frenchman/woman (opposite sex only I'm afraid - no bonus points!)
Actually no, I would have if you had given me a ring. It sounds like great fun.Well I'll admit that a lot of the things I did were very specific to my own interests, as opposed to regular tourist things. And no being dumped or kissed for me (yet) because I am a weird loner!
Here how about this one...Ever walked for nine hours straight in a coastal town/farm area in Bretagne searching for a specific church that probably doesn't exist only to return home to seeing a "pig parade" happening on the pier? Yes, it was some unveiling ceremony of different giant painted pigs, with little crowds around each one politely clapping and "oo-ing" and "aww-ing" after each was revealed. Even though my legs were killing me, I still had to watch that...
Well, have you!? ;P
You should have gone when I did, in 1955, there weren't too many crowds about then, no crocodiles of clicking Japanese, either nor that silly pyramid.Hah no, can't say I've had someone use my head as a camera stand! I have yet to see the Mona Lisa. I just dipped in and out of the Louvre once, didn't want to deal with too many crowds...
That one may be more about the tourists than about France. Tourist behavior (including American tourists) is famous (or infamous) for stories like this.I'm short, and I was in the Louvre looking at the Mona Lisa, and I heard people laughing. I was in the very front of everyone, and I felt a light weight on my head. A Japanese tourist had set his camera on top of my head, to take a photo.
Have any of you experienced this in France?
