Hello supercars, it's been a while since I've been around these parts. I stopped posting during the sc.net meltdown, starting hanging around sb.net instead, and then pretty much gave up on the sb/sc community as a whole. Nothing personal, we just sort of drifted apart. But we can still keep it casual, right? Ahem. Anyway, the last time I posted here I was a high school student living in Chicago, and now I am a consenting, legally drinking adult living in Paris. Things have changed a bit, but the long and short of it is I've only been in Paris for about a week and speak very little French, and I'm really hurting for someone to speak English to. I'm living with my cousin for the next couple months, who is American, but she is in school and has her own group of friends and basically I have a ton of free time and not a whole lot (minus the tourist stuff, which I've been doing in moderation) to occupy myself with. I know some of you guys live on this continent, so I was hoping you might have suggestions for what one might do in the beautiful city of Paris to make friends that speak enough English to hold a decent conversation.
