When I was in high school I lived with a French family for a week as part of a foreign exchange student program. I remember when we were getting to know each other they said they didn't eat soup, and it surprised me (cut me some slack, I was sixteen), but they explained it was always warm in that part of the country so they never had a need or want for soup.

This may be one reason why I'll never move somewhere that's warm year-round. I love soup, and Missoula has some great options.
