French for French Business

May 22, 2013 at 2:42 PM

We are now on the 20th day of our sojourn in France.

We've spent time in larger cities, like Paris, and smaller villages working our way down the 'hexagon' from La Rochelle to Bordeaux, Biarritz and even into Spain to Bilbao. We're working our way across the bottom now and have spent time in the rugby city of Toulouse. Our French friend got Luke McAlister's autograph in a local café there.

We're currently in a little village called Goult in Provence. The one thing that seems to unite this huge country is the language. In my opinion, it must make doing business easier in the domestic market and helps in projecting a sophisticated image for export. Businesses, at least, have this solid base to work from in what is a very difficult economic environment in Europe... which doesn't look like improving any time soon.
