Probably better than they want you to believe.

European: What the f*ck is going on in your country.

American: F*ck if I know, they've all gone insane. Can I bunk here for, say, the next 55 years?

Calm yet worried about people back home.

Much like my summer in France in 2002.  That's when I learned from some expat that we were going to war with Iraq, some nine months before it actually happened (and nine months after 9/11).  It's not my fault, I couldn't find a Canadian flag for my backpack in time to take the trip.

Typically, when a French person asked if I was American, I'd reply, "Mais non! Je suis Canadien.

Donald Trump should be easy to explain to the French; he's just our version of Marine Le Pen (and her father).

/of course, we actually elected him, unlike France and Le Pen, although that's partly due to our voting system sucking (as Clinton got more votes)

Here it was 3.5 months of masks. Yeah, people took them off to smoke. They took them off walking down a bike trail and quickly put it on as someone came near. There was a speakeasy subculture of bars bending the rules.

I wanted to hate on the article but it's pretty accurate. Mostly just reading the American news and worrying about friends and family

There's a scene in "Welcome to Sweden" where the American expat is in immigration class and everyone is introducing themselves and the guy who introduces himself before the American expat is an Iraqi who's entire family was killed by an American drone strike.

The American expat introduces himself as Canadian and then has to keep up the deception as it turns out he likes the Iraqi guy.

"Oh my god, you are Canadian?! And I thought I had it bad! How terrible is must have been to live next to Americans!"

Americans are HORRIBLE.

Say a bunch of virtue-signaling Americans looking for approval on a news website.
