6. Au contraire! Merci a vous.

It's been a few years for me. I really need to go back sometime soon - before Cheeto gets it into his head to ban all travel to France!

7. I don't think he can do that......I hope not, anyway.

Just make sure you have a current passport.

My French is very rusty, but I found that most Parisians speak at least a little English, though they do appreciate any efforts you can make in their language!

Paris is a wonderful city.

8. It is - and indeed they do

I found that, contrary to what I had been told, Parisians prefer you speak to them in English than to have to endure one;s broken French.

Reminds me of an anecdote from an earlier trip I took with my mother around 2000 or so.

My mom's feet were starting to swell from all the walking, and we stopped by a pharmacy by L'Ópera.

"Avez vous une pillule par l'eau?" I asked the attendant.

To which she looked at me like a meerkat, cocked her head a little and said, "Une wahterrr pill?"

Vive la difference!

10. Voila!

I must admit I don't travel as much as I used to because, frankly, I find it to be more of a hassle than anything else (and in the case of, say, Brazil, downright dangerous).

That said, it certainly does have its moments.

4. It could be, my dear applegrove...but I don't know.

There was no description with it.

5. I can't quite tell. It may be too close to the Eiffel Tower. If it is it is call 'the new bridge'

and is the oldest bridge in Paris at 400 years old.

11. My favorite thing to see in Paris is the Winged Victory statue at the Louvre

12. I saw it when I was 16. My mother took me to Paris, London and Amsterdam.

For some reason I was tearing around the Louvre but when I saw Winged Victory I stopped dead in my tracks. I had never seen anything like it! I'll remember that forever!
