… … For me, it was interesting to see the differences and similarities both between Paris and a big city like Seattle and Canandaigua and Vitré. Because I lived in a city for a good part of my childhood and go back for 4 months out of the year, it was comfortable and yet everything […]

… … During my stay in France I mainly visited two major locations, Paris and Vitré; each one contained its own set of eccentricities and individualisms. I found both to be unparalleled by any American town, both in their physicality and attitudes. Similarly, even the two places that I visited in France are not equal […]

… … While I was walking around Paris I thought that it was very similar to New York City, but also very different. New York City is the only other major city that I have ever been to before Paris so it is the only thing that I can compare it to. I think that […]

… … Before any discussion of city life takes place, I would like to begin this reflection with a rant, denouncing the despicable, tortuous traffic apparatus created by Lucifer-himself to remind humanity that we will never escape sin or enter heaven. I speak, of course, of the round-a-bout. Above all in life, if there is […]

… … City life in France was fairly different than in the U.S. However, it shares many similarities. City life is generally faster-paced and more aggressive than life in rural areas. There are homeless people and beggars scattered everywhere and people usually don’t speak to one-another very often while getting around. Drivers constantly honk at […]

… … Life as experienced in a big city is typically known to be bright and exciting. Paris, also known to be called “The City of Lights”, was just that. Paris was by far the most elegant and beautiful city I have ever visited. In many cities of the United States, skyscrapers or remarkably tall […]

… … City life in France is largely different from a large American city for many reasons the first being that the height of the buildings are almost all relatively short compared to a larger American city like Las Vegas, New York City or even Rochester, for that matter. As well as once you reach […]

… … Paris… the week we spent there was such a busy exhausting blur that sometimes it still feels like a dream that I can’t quite recall properly. It’s such a beautiful city! Not overwhelming with lights, noise, and advertisements like New York City, but it’s so classy, dignified, and ancient. The buildings are very […]

… … Family life in Vitré was very different for me from my family in America. Everything from the way the houses were set up to how we ate dinner. In Vitré, the neighborhood and the house that my family lived in were similar to the suburbs that I would pass on the way to […]

… … During my far too brief visit to Vitré France, I had the privilege of being graciously accommodated by a local host family who provided me with innumerable insights on the culture and country. Before arriving in Vitré I had no previous correspondence with my host family, therefore they knew relatively little about me […]
