Avocado and White Bean Salad; Another foray into French health Care — 6 Comments

  1. That’s fascinating, Katie. I never knew that dental cleaning wasn’t considered to be a regular part of dentistry wherever it was practiced….
    And I love the sound of this salad! Avocados are on sale this week. I know what I’ll be doing with them!

  2. Yes I remember having my back looked at in Serbia. I was taken to a huge room (physical therapy I think) taken to the corner and asked to strip to my undies (only about 30 people in the room) then asked to walk back and forth. Issues I have flat feet and I need to lose 20 pounds, I was only 170 pounds and I am 5 feet 10 inches, not even overweight in US standards. This I think was free because the doctor is a family friend.

  3. I’d rather have my teeth cleaned than pulled any day. And no paper gowns? I thought the gowns were bad enough, but the thought of chatting while stripping does not make me want to move to France.
    Avacados are super!

  4. Interesting how different the customs are in different countries. I guess it’s all in what you are used to… but I’d insist on teeth cleaning, for sure!

  5. Val, a nice promise, I hope!
    Toni, we didn’t either. Big surprise! But electric toothbrushes and that sort of stuff is very popular.
    Shayne, I no longer even think about it… and it was only 30 – and you got to leave your undies on…
    Lynn, one adjusts – although I did look for a woman doc!
    Zoomie, every trip back to the US I get my teeth cleaned – expensive, though
