When I lived in the US, I was often critical of many things ‘American’. But when I moved to France, something happened. I started defending the United States. What was different? Who is this patriotic American girl trapped in my body and what has she done with the critical soul that preceded her?
I wanted to make them understand what I love about the country that is so different and yet in so many ways similar to that country of ours so far across the Atlantic Ocean. However, as few things ever go as I plan, there was no reason for this trip to be any different.
