Consulting the guide map

I don't know who they are. They don't know where they are. There's kind of a cosmic symmetry to it all, n'est-ce pas?

"I told you Eugénie, you have to go up these stairs." "Give me that map, Jacques. Do you seriously think they'd put the ladies room at the top of the tower?"

  6. Do you suppose that was a map of the tower and they were trying to figure out the route up? We constantly see people on the streets here, turning maps in circles and scratching their heads.

  9. This reminded me of 1974 when I was a seasoned veteran of the Paris metro. I saw a young woman who was obviously American. She was puzzling over a map. I said "Can I help you?" She struggled to say "Oui, Madame, je voudrais..." At that point I assured her that speaking English would work just fine.
