June 6th Wednesday
Today we visited the US Embassy and learned about foreign policy from our US diplomat Angela. She was telling us how over in France that gay marriage isn't a big issue here. And I think she added it will likely be passed into law making it legal over here. In America that's a big issue and some politicians don't like the fact a big world power is accepting when they aren't in agreement in US congress yet. On the other hand the French aren't happy at all that their US allies use the death penalty in over 30 of the states. Which is understood in America that it is a state-by-state issue and isn't the main topic in American politics. So when thinking about this from a business side, its important to keep in mind that we are on a global economy and trade and trends can affect indirectly or directly depending on what you are selling. Overall I was pleased with the tour of the embassy and it gave me a lot to think about and consider when I start getting my own business started.
