Ok, I've been reading up lots on moving to France. I'd like to try it, and I've been doing research on getting a "carte de sejour" (equivalent to Green Card). One of the tips was to go to the French Embassy in the region and ask for a pamphlet/booklet that explains the process of going to France and such. I went to the embassy, and they were bitches. Sorry for the language. Is this standard in an embassy? The American one was worse. They didn't even want me to bring my cellphone, and I had to make appointments. The French embassy is open and I didn't have to let go of my laptop or anything. The advice at the French embassy on the other hand was horrible. It was so bad that I'm waiting until I get back to Ontario for information. On the other hand, all the french people I met, from France, have been very inviting. Same with the Americans. (Note: I usually tell most tourists to go down and visit New York. Weird thing is, no one wants to go. Australians, French, British, New Zealenders, Africans, basically all tourists want nothing to do with the US. I insist and say that the people there are nice too, and are similiar to Canadians... atleast the ones I met.) Is this normal attitude at embassies? My roommate from Morroco said he was always just able to walk in the Canadian embassy without problems. The American one was the first I went to. I just went and the second I touched the door knob a security came up from behind me and asked me what I'm doing, what do I want, etc... Very strange. Anyways, if anyone knows anything about moving to another country, let me know. Note: I'm planning this for after my Master's which is in 24 months to be exact.
