Red poppies ( coquelicots),
the weeds of the vineyard



France was the biggest export market in the world for my company’s electronic products. It is also a country with a lot to offer in the study of human relationships. My aim in France was to better understand the culture of this special country. I took a sabbatical. One year for my wife and me to spend in France seemed a long time, since we already knew French. But, it turned out we needed several months of intensive language courses before we could do any serious study at the universities, then three semesters of study—and there goes the year.

In the course of our studies, we visited several parts of France. On the following pages are some photos with some scattered impressions.
