Eventually he brings me some coca cola. and he keeps talking so i keep trying to ask for directions, he leaves comes back brings me a double cheese burger so he thinks i am asking for food? All I want is directions, but I am broke and would have just ate bread today since I already broke my budget on an expensive bus, so I eat it then he points to his cheek and wants a kiss, so I get up and slowly sneak away. This is not the first time this has happened I donīt know if I should consider people creepy if they want a kiss or thats just how they say goodbye here.
In France everybody wants kisses on the cheek even if you are a stranger, when i first go to france I was meeting some people and some guy tried to move closer for cheek kissing time and i moved back and i offended him. He said Ļ"oh, YOu are AMERican!" then held out his hand sharpley and stiffley as to shake my hand coldly and said "As YOU like." Well luckily i stumbled upon an internet cafe on my own and it says internet on the side, same way as in English so I donīt know what íīM doing wrong.
