I'm exhausted after all the graduation hoopla this weekend, but I'm still dreaming of France while watching a House Hunters International with a couple looking for an apartment in Grenoble, France.
Does this bother anyone else who loves France? I'm watching a couple who allegedly are entranced by France, and they are always surprised by the bathrooms.
Yes, the bath and the sink are in one room. The toilet is in a separate room in many French apartments and houses.
Maybe they have never visited France before, or maybe they only stayed in American-style hotels so didn't realize the French frequently separate the toilet from the rest of the bathroom, but surely they've seen it when they watched other people on House Hunters International.
When Earl and I went to France the last time, we ate at a well-known steakhouse le Relais de l'Entrecote (a chain as our French friend pointed out).
Here's the outside of the restaurant:
For some reason, I took a picture, a selfie, in the bathroom mirror. So since I'm obsessing about people complaining about bathrooms in France, I thought I'd feature that.
I took out my phone to take a picture of the strange way the toilet flushes, because in France, almost every toilet has a different was to flush -- chains or buttons or a handle built into the side. I didn't get pictures of enough different kinds of toilets to write a blog post about it though.
Did you have to adjust to weird toilets in France? Would you complain if you got to find an apartment in France?
Hope everyone in the U.S. is having a wonderful holiday weekend, our Memorial Day.
Thanks for playing along with Dreaming of France.
