trip to paris
Can anyone share with me any hints to being a tourist in Paris? I'm assuming that city is geared to many tourists from all over the world. Do most places speak English if they hear we're having a hard time speaking French? I've gotten a DVD from the library on basic French, but it's not easy.
Would you recommend just using a credit card for everything? Are travelers checks obsolete? I'm concerned about the conversion of money. How can we avoid being ripped off, or doesn't that happen ?
Thanks for any advice.
