• Traveling in Paris- Metro tickets can get demagnetized so keep them away from electrical devices or anything metallic.
• Tipping is already included in the bill but it’s good to leave 1-2 Euros on the table if the service is good.
• Parisians expect you to say “Bonjour” when you enter a store or restaurant and “Au Revoir” when you leave. (For extra care, treat your waiter like family).
• Watch out for bike lanes; they can be anywhere on the sidewalks as well as in the streets.
• They sell sugar and salted popcorn in movie theaters. FYI: American or British films are mostly in original language with French subtitles.
