After living several years in France, I have started to accept a lot of things. I share, approve, and sometimes agree with what is happening in this country. However, there are times I got so angry and frustrated with certain situations. When discussed with some friends here, all I get as an answer was simply "c'est comme ça" (it's like that).
One day while having our weekly meeting, a coworker announced that some new neighbors just moved into our neighborhood.
Looking out the window, we saw a group of camping cars squatting around office buildings.
My coworkers explained to me that these are called "traveling people". Usually the government provides some lands for them to settle down but some of them prefer to move around and "invade" certain areas.
It has been 3 weeks, and they are still there.
Well, it is hard for me to understand too. The French complain, demonstrate, strike for many things. And for this, their lips are sealed.
