The horizontal stripes on the shirt is the most obvious thing about this photo that is French. The striped shirt is as French as a baguette or cheese and its very cool to see it. I bought one while I was living there but they really should hand everyone that gets off the plane in France one of them. It should be a requirement to enter the country.
The Markets in France is one of the primary reasons why I went back and we were lucky enough to be there at the right time of year. It was well into berry season and by the end of the markets we had healthy amounts of Cherries, strawberries and just about everything else we could carry.
It was a time to remember.
