"The French are weird. Period"

Over at Brasil Com Z (a blog for Brazilians throughout the world), there’s a post (in PT) on how French people are weird, at least to one Brazilian woman living there. She gives 10 ways in which the French do things differently than Brazilians. I’ll write a few of them here.

– There’s no numbers on the apartments (mailboxes), only last names.
– The French happy hour is in someone’s house, until they kick you out to have dinner.
– They blow their nose in handkerchiefs all the time, then put it back in their pocket.
– The lights in the house or apartment are always dimmed and never bright.

Opinions are like accents, we all have them. Nonetheless, it’s still interesting to hear them.
