Some nice photos and resources.

I downloaded your Paris podcast and just listened to it.
A couple comments…
I like the fact you have pictures; most don’t. Overall, it was interesting.
1. Why do you give the cost of things in French Francs? At first I thought it was just an older audiotape made into a podcast until you mentioned the movie “Sideways”. The French Franc hasn’t been the currency for years. I wouldn’t have the slightest idea what the conversion rate would be. Please use the current Euro currency when saying how much something costs.
2. The same of the area that Rick Steves is famous for plugging in Paris is “Rue Cler”, not Rue St. Cler”.

Otherwise I liked the podcast.



The trip I was taking about in this episode was long enough ago that it was pre-Euro, or at least before the paper currency came out. This Summer I went back, hopefully in that show I said Euros.
