My French Cousins

My French CousinsIn a recent post by Kevin Pashuk, he spoke of experiencing culture shock when he went to the US in the 1980’s and asked beBee readers to share their experiences. I have had many multicultural experiences in my life, but the very first started in my childhood. Here is my story.

When I was about nine years old, I discovered I had French cousins. My maternal grandfather grew up in St. Pierre et Miquelon. These tiny islands are located in the North Atlantic, just south of Newfoundland and fly under the French flag. The inhabitants are not Canadian in any way.
