1. family life in france
  • You are staying with your aunt who lives in a little village in the middle of France. You are having lunch with a few of her friends and they are asking about your family. You explain that there are 5 kids in your family. You tell them that you and two younger brothers live in Georgia, your older sister is going to college in Chicago, and that your brother lived in Miami, but now moved to New York for a job. Her friends are shocked by this! Why do you think they are shocked?

  • Extended families, at least in rural France, are extremely common. Often, families have occupied the same property for generations and those that have left home have only managed to stagger a few hundred meters down the road. Grandmas, aunties and godparents are all normally close to hand.

  • You already know the French are obsessed with food and have seen some interestingly different foods put on the table. However, your host mother tells you that you will be eating roast chicken for lunch. You are excited but a little surprised when the roast chicken is brought to the table fully cooked with its head and claws attached and even more surprised when grandma is given the head and she cracks it open with her knife and eats the brain. How do you react to this situation?
