What do expats in Epinal appreciate most about the local culture?

Live in Epinal? Answer this Question

"In France, there really is time to stop and smell the roses, and when one does things here, one does them fully, instead of splitting attention in 5 directions at once. Mealtime is meant for good food and fellowship. Weekends are meant for enjoyment (not bringing work home). In general, the culture is more slow and appreciative of simple pleasures," added another expat who made the move to Epinal.

What do expats find most challenging?

Live in Epinal? Answer this Question

"The humor is darker (people don't find it rude to joke at the expense of others) and people are much more direct, which can come across as brashness or rudeness. Also, mealtimes are very rigid, so my stomach had a hard time adjusting to the hunger between meals," explained one expat living in Epinal, France.

Is there a lot of diversity? Are people in Epinal accepting of differences?

Live in Epinal? Answer this Question

"As a small town with few expats & international visitors, there is not an overtly diverse culture, but there are various religious institutions, celebrations of other culture (like "American Night" in the summer), and an organization called "EST Solidarite" dedicated to solidarity with foreigners," mentioned another expat in Epinal.
