What I Miss About America
Over the years I've met a lot of Americans traveling in France, and they're always very curious about how and why we chose to move here.
The questions come fast and furious: Why did you move to France? Did you move for a job? How long have you been here? How long will you stay? Was it difficult to get a visa? Is your husband French? Did you move here for your husband's job? How did you find a place to live? Why did you choose Normandy? Do you like living in France?
Then the inevitable question is asked: What do you miss most about living in America?
The answer is easy. Mexican food!*
Thank heavens I can now get a fix at Candelaria in Paris when the cravings are really bad!
*even more than being able to return broken items without an argument, easily accessible public toilets and authentic Thai food
