Tips for France, By Lynn Reese

Lynn Reese originally wrote me saying: I will be arriving in France the morning of the USA Yugoslavia game (the 25th) and would be interested in meeting up with other Sammers/USA fans. I will also be at the Toulouse match, as well as several other Round of 16 matches before returning to Paris for the summer.

I don't know what your plans are for the web site, but I this is my second summer studying in Paris, so I know the city quite well. If you want any advice, or tips about Paris (or France in general), let me know.

A bientot,

Lynn Reese

Lynn has posted so many good sets of tips, I thought it would be nice to give them their own home, and make it easier for folks to get to them for reference. This will save you from scavanging through the message board as well. Lynn, thank you very much for sharing this with us, and please keep the tips coming !
