    Moi je serai dispo avec Kendra mais on sait pas trop à quelle heure, on reviendra en voiture de St Etienne donc ca dépendra de la circulation.

    Marc, did you email me today? I received an email asking if meeting Monday was okay next week. That should work fine for me if that's the case. 501st was also mentioned that they may be busy at a convention and may not be able to attend?

    It's easy: look for a guy with a funny helmet and asking his way to a sith bar called La Cantina :)

    C'est vrai. Mes photos sur mon website. *shudders at his French*

    But 6:30pm works for me. Just look for the only blondish/brown haired American in the bunch and I'm sure you'll find me. hehe. I'll try and wear my blue Star Wars t-shirt (if it's not too cold).

    So where exactly are we meeting at? I didn't see that in your PM. You mentioned something about Chinese food earlier?

    The meeting is at 6:30pm in front of a bar called "The Bombardier".
    The address is "2 place du Panthéon", near the famous Pantheon, of course :)
    We should eat asian food, but later after bar. Here in France, we have dinner later than in the US :)

    Will be there :
    - Keith
    - Marcolas
    - Kendra
    - Kdace
    - Jawa24

    Waiting for answers
    - DarkVador
    - Malinza
    - Maybe guys from 501st

    Sounds good to me. From the looks of it I can just hop on the RER to Luxembourg and that should get me the closest. Or maybe Carinal Lemoine on the 10 line. I know I'm just going to get confused with all the trains over there. :)

    The same namesake (Metro) in Washington DC actually has less lines. Maybe the Metro in Paris isn't as difficult as it looks on paper.

    Look forward to see you all there. Oh and when do you guys usually eat dinner? Some families eat around 6pm. But I've always eated at around 7-8pm. :)

    RER to Luxembourg is the best way. And on the "Rue Soufflot", when you'll walk from RER to the pub, you'll find "Arkham", a comic book shop who also sells SW toys

    Look forward to see you all there. Oh and when do you guys usually eat dinner? Some families eat around 6pm. But I've always eated at around 7-8pm.
    Usually I eat at around 8pm :)

    Thanks for the advice. I can never get too many Star Wars comics so I will have to definitely drop by there.

    So what kind of alchohol do you guys enjoy? Beer? Or does France have it's own decent brew I should try out?

    Je ne bois pas du champagne ou du vin. :( Je ne les desire pas. C'est la vie, non? Mais, je bois la biere. [face_love]

    (it's so sad that after taking 3 years of French I can barely remember even half of it) :_|

    8pm eh? Je pense que je peux manipuler cela. (with the help of bablefish) :_|. hehe.

    Oh and is it true that most meats are cooked rare (mostly red) in France? I haven't been to France in over 13 years. And I was only in Strousborg for a day or two. So it's been awhile.

    we drink many different things but most of us also drink beer :)

    you can ask for what you want about meat in a restaurant. if you want it rare or burned you decide.

    Ah that's good to hear on both ends. I'm a well-done (barely burnt) kinda meat-eater. :)

    I'm not much for American beer, but I love Ale and Lager from the UK and Germany. Now, that's good stuff. :)

    I had the best time with you all on Monday. Thanks so much for coming out to meet me. =) As soon as I get the chance to look up that tv show I will. I promise I...I wasn't dreaming. hehe.

    Anyhow, I'm back in Paris todqy and leave for the Netherlands tomorrow. I'll be back home on the 12th.

    Normandy was amazing. Really brings it all into perspective. It was a bit on the chilly side, and a bit windy but amazing nonetheless. And New Star Con was awesome also. The Netherlands 501st was very accommodating in letting me use one of their TIE pilot uniforms. :)

    But...all good things must have to come to an end at some point. Basically meaning..I leave for home tomorrow. I'll send you guys the pic I took from the Bombadier if you'd like. Just let me know who all wants it.

    By the way, I went over to RaidTolkien.com but couldn't find those pics to save my life. Any help? :)

    I'll send those pics when I get home tomorrow.
