    I visited France several times when I was living in Europe. I found the rural French to be very friendly and hospitable. It is the urban French, especially in Paris, who are unfriendly. New Yorkers, for example, are very hospitable compared to Parisians.

    Seems rural folk in general are simple, friendly people. Even in the US, city folk always seem to have more of an attitude than rural folk.

    I agree, rural folk are freindluy in a lot of countries.
    But in Paris, it is right, lot of people are not really freindly. often, they have stress given by their job, and so, they can be unfreindly. Even in France we think that the Paris poulation has this reputation. But like everywhere,; it is not a globality, not the truth for all the inhabitants of Paris.
