    Oh, they do have a low tolerance of people who do not speak their native language, so Rosetta Stone is perfect…I love the fresh food and some of the best wine in the world.

    France has always been a more liberal and fair place for African-Americans and I do mean just African-Americans, others do no fair so well. Their has always been an respect for our music, dance etc….Big jazz lovers. I love the south of France the best…although I admit their clothes sizing is different, I wear a size 6 American, I wear a size 8 European (ouch). And it is good to get away from the limitations of some African-Americans have set for themselves….
