          When you examine the tensions that sometimes arise between Americans and the French, many of them come from the different ways our two cultures operate.  On this week's Travel with Rick Steves, Rick takes a deeper look at the cultural faux pas some travelers experience in France.  Our insider's guide to France and its culture comes from two native-born French tour guides, based in opposite corners of the country.  That, and your calls about the best, and worst, food you've found in your travels, are coming up on the next Travel with Rick Steves.
