In this Podcast Jeff Steiner talks with Samantha, an American in the 15th arrondissement of Paris.
She has a blog - Totally Frenched Out.

"I'm lucky to be here!"

Samantha starts with what it's like to be an American in Paris and discribes her neighborhood. She then talks about what brought her to Paris and some differences between living in Paris and Brittany where she used to live - biggest difference: she can be anonymous in Paris but was known as 'the American' in Brittany.

She then moves on to getting married in France, some differences between French and American weddings, how she meet her husband and the dynamics of being an intercultural couple. She then goes on to talk about learning French and how much French she know before she came to France. She took a French course at Rennes University and then taught English for two years.

Next up is some of the things she doesn't like about France and who she socializes with. She gives some advice for those wanting to move to France and comments Paris isn't as bad as they say! The conversation then moves on to talk about how the French differentiate between people and their government.

Samantha finishes by talking about her blog and how her blogging connected her with others and helped her realize she wasn't the only one having problems as an expat. She ends by commenting how France is a relatively small but very diverse.
