Viva la France!

As I have been catching up on my blog reading, This French Life had a couple of great articles... one about French markets, and the other about thieves pumping gases into caravans... And just when you thought France was the perfect place to live. I will post the article about markets, but you will need to follow the link to read about the thieves. :-)

SUMMER market in France can turn up some real surprises, but can also turn into a bit of a mad crush as once quiet village squares fill up to bursting point.

I've spotted a number of entertaining articles over the past couple of days that highlight the many characters, differences and treasures you can find.
