It's not ALL bad.
In case people feel like we are getting down on the French here I should say that there are a few aspects to this process which are really great.
1. It's all free. Except for the photocopying, the ID photos and the flight to San Francisco. Obtaining a visa in the US costs over a thousand bucks.
2. They haven't asked me to fill out a questionnaire about my past. In the US they sent Grégoire a form with questions like: Are you a prostitute? Are you a drug dealer? Are you a communist?
3. They haven't sent me to prison or deported me even though technically they could.
So it's not all bad. France, I know we are going to get through this.
