The Swedish-French Christmas heads up

Today's article is going to be brief, and aims to help everyone who's been in Sweden for a while, and is discovering Paris
There are subtle changes when you go from one city to another, or from one country to the other, that you would prefer to know about, and that can make your life considerably easier. Today's article is going to be brief, and aims to help everyone who's been in Sweden for a while, and is discovering Paris:

- When going on the metro, don't think the doors will open again if you get stuck. Take a deep breath, and start pushing the doors back open yourself to get in... otherwise you might stay stuck for a while

- When crossing the road, look both ways, even if the pedestrian light is green, or when a sign clearly says that pedestrians have priority. It seems french drivers don't like to slow down for you as much as the swedes

- When in need of help and feel like asking for assistance, do it in french, not in english. If you don't speak french, learn it. Otherwise noone will ever know what you are asking about.

As I said, today's article will be brief, so enjoy your evening
Merry Christmas / God Jul / Joyeux Noel
