The French love Americans, hate America. They think you should all speak French.
Was high-up behind one end of the ground in Marseilles, maybe behind you. Saw the Springbok v. Fiji game the next day; very entertaining match. Also had a good local bar/restaurant in Lalonde to watch the other Quarter-finals on tv. Great atmosphere.
