In the UK the accepted drivers signal for ' Go ahead / I am surrendering my right of way ' is a flash or two of the headlights. In France the same signal means the opposite. How does one signal ' Go ahead / I am surrendering my right of way ' in France?

Quelle Coincidence?

I am trying to remember the title of a French movie I saw in early 1999, although it may date from earlier than that.

Where can I watch the NFL in Paris?

I've recently moved to Paris, and I'd like to know if there are any pubs where I can catch NFL games on Sunday nights. I know they will start pretty late in the evening, but I just want to have a beer and watch a game. Bonus points for places that might air Jets/Giants.

Grocery shopping in Nice

I have a couple of very specific questions about our upcoming travel to Nice, France. 1. Does the Monoprix located on Avenue Jean Medecin sell groceries? And if so, would it be likely that we can find space in the nearby car park at about 6 pm on a Saturday? (We're coming directly from the States to a rural gite and will need to buy provisions for at least Sunday breakfast.) 2. Does the Monoprix at Place Garibaldi sell groceries and, if it does, is it possible to park nearby? (Both of these stores figure on our planned route out of the city. However, maps only show car parks near the one on Jean Medecin.) 3. Does traffic on Avenue Thiers, where the train station is located, run in both directions or just one way? It's not totally clear from all the maps I have consulted. If it is only one way and to the east, we'll have to greatly revise our itinerary out of town. Thanks muchly.

How can an expat buy a scooter in Paris?

Help me buy a scooter in Paris. I've just moved to Paris for work, and will be getting my carte de sejour (longterm visa) in a few weeks. I would like to find a decent second-hand Vespa or something similar. Some of the questions I have: Can I get a nice ride for under 1000€? Will I need an expensive French license (I currently hold one from NJ)? What type of insurance will I need and how much should I expect to pay? I'm looking to buy in September, so any help would be appreciated!

la france!

I'll be going to France in a little under 2 months, to stay 2 weeks with a family that doesn't speak much English at all, in a relatively small town that doesn't speak much English at all. I'm decently proficient, but not confident, and definitely lacking in the listening/speaking end. I have, however, 9 days coming up where I will have more than enough free time. I won't have an internet connection, but I'll have a laptop I can put stuff on. What is the best use of the next 2 months in terms of preparing for functioning well on the trip? [more inside]

What's the correct protocol for the French double-kiss?

[French-kissing filter (not that kind)] When doing that little double kiss the French do, should I go right then left, left than right, or is there some subtle clue that the French give off to let you know which direction you should be moving your head? 'Cause if you go left when she goes right, it's not office appropriate and seems to upset her...
