The French do everything slower except drink coffee - actually, they either do that incredibly slowly (1hr) or far too fast (2 secs).
French movie theatres play movies at a normal, comfortable volume, it's fantastic.
French kids are better dressed than I will ever be.
Despite common misconception, American bubble gum pop music does not sound better in France.
Parisians don't use their cell phones nearly as much as people in NA. It's very rare to see someone talking on their cell while walking or at a park. Actually, most people in parks seem to be doing nothing at all, just sitting, watching, sleeping, resting - seems like a bit of a meditation. I like these restorative pauses in life.
