Culture shock in France may surprise you – Part Two

6. French Politeness 

Shopkeepers, cashiers and even random people on the street will say hi/ bye/ have a nice day.

 

 

7. Stores have different hours than what you're used to

Most of the stores will be closed between 12 – 2 for lunch and sometime may closed as early as 5 or 6pm. They usually not open on Sunday.

 

 

8. Baguettes

French really do buy baguettes daily and it is common to see people walking down the street with a baguette and newspaper.

 

 

9. Everything takes time

If you want to open a bank account, you have to make an appointment, bring a ton of documents with you and filled it up, then wait for a few weeks.

 

 

10. Wine and Cheese are cheap

5 Euros you can get a bottle of wine and some Brie in France.
