- cheese
- other foods
- being hit on by strange men even when I feel skanky and unshowered
- menthes à l'eau
- Nestea pêche
- French radio
- walking
- packaging printed in multiple languages
- text-messaging
- mountains
- being foreign
- the salad dressing
- the pace of life
- perfume
- musical cell phone rings
- socialism
- subtitled movies

Things I don't miss about France

Hmm... I tried to limit myself to just Paris. Now I will have to rethink things and extend my lists to the entire country. Perhaps even all of Europe. But not today.
