I have been in the bayou areas of Louisiana and enjoyed it very much. It's curious that you think one would have to like one or the other, but could not enjoy both experiences.
When I was in Paris last year, people were very polite and friendly to me, and if they were anti-American they showed no indication of it on a personal level. However, when we were in Stockholm the previous year, a man sitting next to us in the bar at the Opera demanded to know "what we were going to do about our president". I said as jovially as I could that there was an election coming up, and something would be done about it then. I'm sorry to see that America's stock has gone down so far in the world, but I think it would be better restored under McCain than Obama.
When I was in Paris, the people were generally inconsiderate. I'm still not sure if it is because Paris is just a large city, or because its residents are just jerks.
The rest of France, however, is beautiful, and worth the trip. The drive from Paris to Germany is wonderful, and the people of rural France are very nice and welcoming.
Maybe that's why so many Germans have done it in the past... :D
France was a good country for me, Paris (like New York) has that capital of the country private vibe, but it's still a great country. You get to the rural areas and you're having dinner with them and player poker in inns. :D
what I find curious is that our leaders spend more time with other nations. Explore you back yard, and all its splendor, then jump the fence and look where your neighbors are hiding the bodies.
