France. The very name conjures up images of cheerful sidewalk cafes and general joie de vivre. Well, the French do know how to live … the legally mandated 35-hour workweek being a case in point.
With leisure coming before labor in the minds of la publique, Paris is without doubt the center of all things cultural. The city’s museums and monuments are likewise the raison d'ętre for many a visit to this, the world's most touristed country. And well worth the journey.
