Culture: Write about your destinations culture.
"83-88% of French people are Catholic. 2% are protestant. 1% are Jewish. 5-10% are Muslim. 4% are unaffiliated." Food is one of the greatest things french people are good at. "French people have few children but take role as a protector very seriously." Hand shaking is a common way of meeting someone. "Friends might greet each other by lightly kissing on the cheeks, once to the left and once to the right." Flowers should be given in an odd number but 13 because that is an unlucky number. When dinning dress nice and arrive on time. Don't eat until the host says "bon appetit." Meaning eat well. Finish everything on your plate during a meal to show you enjoyed it. "Peal and slice fruit before eating it." Those are some french cultures.
