The departure day it swiftly approaching. So to prepare myself I've been learning about many things about France.
Here's a list of a few things I've discovered:
*there are more pets in France than there are children
*women were not allowed to vote in France until 1944
*cave paintings in Lascaux are estimated to be over 15,000 years old
*cotton candy is called barbe a papa "dad's beard"
* it's rude to put your hands in your lap during a meal, French (and it seems Europeans in general) find this really strange
* there are over 500 varieties of cheese made in France
