France vs. North Carolina

France has better food.

The French work a 35-hour workweek and get an average of 37 vacation days per year.

France’s healthcare system consistently tops the list of best in the world.

Oh, and the French are better parents, too. (Watch the video and tell me those American women don’t sound crazy.)

The Eiffel Tower, Sacre Coeur, Notre Dame, crepes from street vendors, the Louvre. And don’t forget Provence, fields of lavender, Marseille, Versailles, Julia Child, the ex-pat literary figures of the 1920s, Van Gogh, Pasteur. Croissants.

Tomorrow’s high temperature in Paris: 26.

Tomorrow’s high temperature here: 64.

Well, then.

North Carolina for the win!

    Haha, this made me laugh. I’m definitely a warm weather person. I hope to see France someday, though maybe in the summer. ; )
