Something that I first noticed when I got here was that the four year old girl continually goes “Coo Coo, Coo Coo” when she starts talking to people. At first I COULD NOT understand why this was a thing, but then I started waking up at normal times (as in, not 4am in the morning every day) and realized there are perpetually pigeons perched outside of this house, and the sound they make is: You guessed it – “Coo Coo, Coo Coo.” Something you should know, however, is that these pigeons are not your average American pigeons. They are HUGE. As in, double the size. As in, you could cook one and get a decent meal out of it.
This is France.
