    Three Expats. Three Perspectives. Sutanya Dacres, Dinner For One Podcast

    36:58

    In the first installment of our series "Three Expats. Three Perspectives." we speak with Sutanya Dacres, host of the Dinner For One podcast. Suntanya discusses her journey from the island of Jamaica to New York and on to Paris. Billed as "An audio exploration of what happens when the Paris fairytale ends and real life begins," Dinner For One is -- like it's host -- honest, direct and holds nothing back.  In that vein we discuss everything from coping with divorce in a foreign country, race, loneliness, Jamaican beef patties and Dominican hairdressers!

    Demystifying the French (and France) with Author Janet Hulstrand

    23:23

    In this episode we are joined by Janet Hulstrand, author of Demystifying the French, How to Love Them and Make Them Love You. Janet splits her time between the United States and Essoyes (population 750), in France's Champagne region. It is that experience that gave rise to France-based writers workshops and her latest book. Aimed at first-time visitors to France and expatriates. Demystifying helps readers avoid common mistakes and get off on the right foot with the French. It begins with five essential tips "for even brief encounters" by introducing a few French phrases that will pave the way for a positive experience in France. The tips are followed by 10 chapters that go into a deeper explanation of French habits, manners, and ways of viewing the world. Janet shares the perspective she has gained in nearly 40 years of time spent living, working, teaching, and traveling in France, and illustrates the principles she is discussing with sometimes touching, and often amusing, personal anecdotes. To learn more about Janet Halstrand's books and her writers workshops visit https://janethulstrand.com/ or https://wingedword.wordpress.com/. Read Janet Hulstrand's articles for Bonjour Paris.
