Foreigners might be worried about what is going on in France. Riots in 2005, strikes, immoral politics, this country is in a really bad shape.

Well, from the inside, it's much calmer. I haven't seen any car burning. I work in a french suburb, and I have never been attacked. My wife is expecting a daughter, and the social security system is still very good to help us prepare the arrival (we received so much money from the state that I stopped counting). Still, we had a crapy month of may. Rain, cold, that was weird.

Maybe we don't realize, in our daily lives, how doomed we are because there would be a massive plot to put all of us on drugs. I did realize this when I saw this shop, in a very bourgeois district in Lyon (the 6th arrondissement).

Or I'm too paranoïd, and it's just a clue that french colonization was maybe really cool, after all...

PS : "tisane" is herbal tea. Strong effects on your mood, really...
