Reasons to love France

You recently asked what people like most about France – so here’s my list:

1. The space in the countryside where I live and on the roads.

2. The courtesy given to cyclists by motorists, in Brittany at least.

3. The way that everyone greets you in the local café / bar with a handshake or la bise, never too much trouble.

4. The excellent health service.

Mark BENNETT, Ille-et-Vilaine
