Oh, hello. Back at home and missing France already. Walking around New York, it’s all I can do not to say, “Pardon!” when I bump into someone. But that’s not what I find myself missing most.

What are the favorite foreign customs you’ve observed and/or picked up while traveling?

For me, it’s walking into a store, finding the person in there, and saying, “Bonjour.” Not to mention the, “Merci! Au revoir!” on the way out. I know that French people have a reputation for being rude, but I find that so polite and human, if not friendly. In America, sales assistants will come up and ask you if you need help, but no one gives a fig if you walk out without saying a word. I really miss it when I get back home.
