Extrait du texte d'un Américain en voyage à vélo en France (Normandie et Bretagne), en 1997.
" [...], you will magically discover that most of the French are very pleasant and helpful and that many of them speak "a leetle beet" of English; if, like many Americans, you just start speaking English or making demands, you will find that the French are rude and arrogant and none of them speak any English at all. "
" France, at least, is a beautiful combination of countryside, wildflowers, farms, hills, rivers, castles, churches, villages, ports, people, culture, and history. I think it is a mistake to simply ride through it rather than into it. "
La dernière partie de phrase est très belle, et j'en partage entièrement l'avis :
" I think it is a mistake to simply ride through it rather than into it"
