This is a cute little video regarding the clich├ęs we Americans tend to believe about France and the French.



Ah, too true! We do have a tendency to put people in little boxes, no matter where we live. Enjoy! (I love the music)!

Best Wishes,

I think the world is rife with cliches about cultures other than our own. I know Australia has more than it's fair share from others, but you need to keep it in perspective & enjoy a laugh about yourself too.

Mary, I agree. And actually, even within one country, other parts of the country will want to place a label on you (in the U.S. we're very "north" and "south", each side making broad assumptions about the other side, something that dates back to pre-1860's)! And your comment about perspective and maintaining a sense of humor is so true!
