How to get appliances in your apartment in Francer

This small truck held up traffic today on our boulevard (largest street in town). I stopped, my dog sat down and we watched!

Washer and dryer, fridge, dish washer and entire contents of an IKEA kitchen.


Love your pics demonstrating cultural differences! Captivant!

Over the years we have received some Europeans in our countryside house. 100% of them can not believe their eyes when the see our sub-zero humongous fridge… When I tell them that we could put a Renault 5 in it and close the door, they agree! Marc

So I have to tell this anecdote that happened to me about 30 years ago. I was in a train going to the Côte-d’Azur region. I met this young American (male) fellow and engage conversation. He had just arrived from Kansas, spent the night in Paris, took a night train to Lyon and transferred to my train going South. At certain point, he asked me about the most intriguing object he saw in his Paris’s room: a bidet.

I kinda knew that he was puzzled by it and asked him what he thought it was about:. His replied: a washing bassin for underwear, socks and other intimate lingerie. I have a good poker face and put some more butter on his bread… Yes, I replied: you have hot and cold water, an overfull space and a rather large bassin to soak the clothes and it’s located in the restroom. How convenient and thoughtful of them, right?

So if you ever meet a guy from Hutchison, Kansas please don’t laugh at him…



We all have bidet here… not to wash the underwear… :blush:

I promise I won’t laugh but its a great story!
