Right! Sorry about the Internet situation, it’s…not yet resolved but HEY I have a code to get WiFi from the street so…. it’s kinda good 😉
This week for some reason I was thinking about all of the hand gestures that have saved me and that I just find super amusing. French people are super.
Don’t forget to say hi on
The Facebook Page
Subscribe to the YouTube 😉
Have a kickass week.
Even if you don’t have Thursday off 😉
AND HAPPY BASTILLE DAY!

I was just reading one of my favorite blogs when I came upon a new application for learning French — listen up all you people coming to visit Paris !!! — Daphnée !
You can just download the application and listen to the 1-hour videos that talk about Basics and greetings, Culture, Shopping, Cafés and restaurants, Nightlife, Seduction.
Sadly, nothing yet about learning how to luge down the hill behind the Sacré Coeur or basejump off of the Eiffel Tower, but I’m sure those lessons are on the way..
Also according to the site you can ask her a question about something you’re learning and you’ll get a response within 24 hours.
Have you tried it?
Is her name really Daphnée?
Can someone exchange her French lessons for Twitter lessons?
Does someone need this in San Francisco?.. (just kidding!!! :D)
And what does this mean in terms of data roaming for foreigners that would actually download it on their iPhone while in Paris?….
