Getting closer...

Je suis tres enthousiaste por mon vogage a France avec mon mere et mon soeur!

It's getting closer and I've been so busy lately that I just realized it's less than two weeks away! I've been brushing up on my French. I feel pretty good about it. I've got some of the basics down:

- Where is the bathroom? Ou es les toilettes?
- I'd like a chocolate eclair please. Je voudrais un chocolate eclair s'il vous plais.
- I'd like a glass of white wine please. Je voudrais un verre de vin blanc s'il vous plais.

Really, do I need much else in France?

If you have any great French travel tips, places I should see, cafes I should stop and get a bit to eat in, please share! Merci!

Oh, I wish I could share tips! But someday I hope to ask you for your French travel tips!

Heather should be a big help. She has spent some time in France. I think you have found the three most important phrases so you should be good. I hope you have a great time. I can't wait to take a trip like this someday with Isha.

All I can say is that I'm sick with envy. I have been twice. Once when I turned 18 (lived in Nice for a summer) and Once when I turned 21 (went all over Europe avec ma Soeur. We ate like poor college students, so I can't really send you to a great cafe. All I know is that you will have the time of your life. Can't wait to hear all about it!

TRES BIEN!!! You lucky dog!!! I know you are going to have such a great trip!

My favorite restaurant in Paris - Cafe Marche (the best chevre chaud salad I have ever eaten), not too far from the Eiffel Tower. I can't remember the arrondisment (pretend that is spelled second language is Spanish), but Rick Steves recommends his book would have it. -S
