  • Cell phone options
  • Public phones. Available at tobacco shops, post offices, and France Télécom stores, a real France Telecom card or télécarte is necessary for nearly all public telephones. You'll notice that on the front/left side, they have a microchip or “puce” that keeps track of the number of units left after each telephone call. Each card has either 50 or 120 “unités”( call credits that you can watch count down as you make the call) and is sold for either 7.50 € or 15 €. The télécarte will allow you to make calls within France easily and at a reasonable rate, and you can call home at a rate that, while not good, is at least discernable. These fast and easy cards are particularly useful when you're only calling home to ask that someone call you back. To make an international call from France, you first dial 00, then the country code, then the number you are calling. For the U.S., you will dial something like 001xxx-xxx-xxxx

lbat paris 2009 vie pratique tips for eating cheap and well
LBAT-PARIS 2009Vie pratique: tips for eating cheap and well
  • Please email me ASAP if you have any dietary restrictions (vegetarian, vegan, religious dietary rules) or if you are allergic to certain food types to specify what you can’t or mustn’t eat ! Merci…
  • Knowing that lunch is not served at the MIJE-Fourcy restaurant and that you may not always be 100% satisfied with the food for breakfast and/or dinner (be it qualitatively or quantitatively), here are some money-saving solutions :

1)Buy your preferred foods/snacks in bulk at the nearby supermarkets (G20 , Franprix…hours of operation: 9am to 9pm). For breakfast, you may want to buy pastries, jam, Nutella. For lunch, you may want to prepare sandwiches made from scratch (with baguettes, camembert, brie, tomatoes, fruits etc..) and/or buy packaged mixed salads and/or yogurts.

2) Buy fresh (organic) produce, veggies and so much more at the marché en plein airin Place BaudoyerWed 3-8:30pm + Saturday morning 7:30am -3pm

3) Vegetarians and/or and non-vegetarian alike will find excellent stand food at the Jewish and Libanese restaurants. If you’re craving falafels, hummus, or taboule, check L’As du Fallafel et L’Escale du Liban out. These restaurants are within walking distance from the MIJE…miam-miam!

  • Remember: the “to-go box” (or “doggy bag” for the French) is a concept is alien to French dining culture and restaurateurs.
LBAT-PARIS 2009What to pack? Packing List. Avoiding pickpockets. Paris safety tips. Tipping in Paris and France.
  • Weather in June
  • Weather in July
  • Packing list : consult this list before your trip to France so you don't leave home missing those needed items. By all means, not everyone will need everything off this list. If you take everything on this list, you will NOT be packing light.
  • Tips for avoiding pickpockets in Paris : don’t bring expensive jewelry, don’t carry too much cash. You can purchase almost anything anywhere with a VISA credit card.
  • Paris safety tips : Paris is statistically a safe place. Even safer is the high-end district where you will be staying ! Avoid taking the first and the last metro. Avoid smiling at or making prolonged eye contact with men you do not know: in France, this is (unfortunately) often interpreted as an invitation to make advances. Avoid smiling at or making prolonged eye contact with women even though the jealous infuriated husband or boyfriend might not be in sight. Go out as a group every time you can. Avoid jam-packed places and shady bars/clubs (they’re usually empty). Remain poised and disengage from any situation potentially leading to verbal abuse, physical confrontation or sexual harassment.
  • Tipping in Paris and France.
