    Photography no problem, but they may argue with you about your pronunciation of Saint Germain des Pres.

    Us Canadians prefer Mr Bean, but I would not eat any turkey he prepares.

    "Be humble, polite, and apologetic. Dumb American plays much better than Ugly American"

    That's SO true!
    Other advices : travel light and bring more film than you planned to. There'll always be a place or monument you'll fall in love with.

    And photographing bird-feeders is tricky because what they do is illegal . Animal lovers will think you're a plain-clothes cop.

    You know Benny Hill looks a lot like Newt Gringrich

    I have read through all 4 pages of responses and every response is much appreciated... including the comparson of Benny Hill to Gingrich .
    I have come away with assurance that my little black Voightlander isn't going to cause me any grief, I'll be fatter upon return than when I left, and I'll have some really great pictures of the City of Lights.
    Thanks everyone!

    No. That would be Jacques Tati.

    And if you ask for directions to Notre Dame, please don't use the American pronunciation which is nothing close to reality!
