Subject: Re: friendly Parisians

Pick up a copy of French or Foe by Polly Platt. It's a really useful book that will give you some great insights on dealing with the french. I got it after my 3rd trip to Paris, and while I was always comfortable and treated well there, the book gave me some tips that made things even more easy and understandable. It's a fun easy book to read and you'll enjoy it. Yes, Paris is one of the most beautiful cities. I just adore being there. Sitting in a cafe with a coffee or just walking the streets is the most pleasurable of activities.
