Being vegetarian in France

Mostly it isn’t a problem to be a vegetarian in France.
At school I get something else and my host family keeps action that there is always something to eat for me on the table.
But in the time before Christmas and when we eat somewhere else it isn’t easy. The French love food and meat. Often I can only eat the vegetables, cheese and the dessert. But they’re good!! (Yeah, I’m absolutely in love with cheese and desserts!)
There were many people in Germany who said that I would have problems as a vegetarian in France. Yeah, there are problems, but only sometimes.
And I’m in a region where they eat much meat.
So, it’s good to be here and I’m definitely not hungry!
