French farmers love to stand around and debate how to get things done for a while, which was interesting to watch (at first). Also, there's the 'grab-ass' ritual, whereby everyone lines up and shakes each other's hands, then bullshits and catches up for 20 minutes. After shaking the hands of about 30 farmers I made the mistake of shaking one guy's hand twice. He was shocked, and possibly insulted. In spite of an ocean of large calloused hands, they know exactly which are left unshaken, because they walk around either shaking, or passing people by, saying 'Je t'ai vu.'
Anyhoo, it was a big pile of good times, although I only spent about 20 minutes at the actual event. It was hot and I couldn't be arsed.
