This is a question that would be relevant only to US citizens over 65 and spending much of their time abroad: does anyone know if it is possible to suspend your Medicare Part B and Medicare Part D premiums when you are out of the US? The penalties for not enrolling when eligible are prohibitive, and the premium costs are substantial, especially since Medicare covers no expenses incurred outside the US. My wife and I live in France now, and have coverage in France, but we may return to the US at some time in the future and would then need Medicare coverage. Thanks in advance for any information you can provide.
Hi I am an American .. born in the USA. I was married to a French man for 8 years and had 2 daughters ( both born in France and thus French with Dual nationality France/USA). I divorced in 2001 and returned to the USA with my daughter- where I reside today , in Los Angeles. I was stupid and did not apply for my French citizenship when I was married!! I did live in France for 10 years and work there as well - with a carte de residence ( which has long expired at this point). I would like to apply for French citizenship now -- is it possible ? Also, I don't live in France at the moment..is that a problem? Any advice from anyone on how to begin ? I guess technically I am applying through my French daughters - but also myself as I have worked in France for over 5 years? I speak perfect French- just don't know where to begin.... help!!
I hope that you don't mind me messaging you but we are hoping that you might know someone who might be able to help us for a charity event that we are organising in May. We run a charity that helps children who are suffering from brain tumours after losing our son aged 11 years old from one. We are organising a bike ride from Paris to Canvey Island in Essex, England and need someone to help the riders to get from the Arc de Triomphe to Cergy- all we need is someone to either show the riders the way or if someone could provide us with detailed written instructions of the best route to take. We have brought lots of maps and have driven to Paris but we have found it very difficult to find safe roads out of Paris without getting lost. We have already organised the route from Cergy to Dieppe but are struggling getting to Cergy from Paris. We all have road bikes and are hoping that you may know someone who could help or you may have an idea who we could ask for help. Thank you and kind regards.Chris Green. http://www.thedannygreenfund.org.uk/
Hi,I am from India and currently I have applied for Carte de Sejour Temporarie (in France). Currently I have received a "récépissé de demande de carte de séjour" which is valid for 3 months and I need to wait for 2 months to get the Carte. During this period, can I travel to India for a couple of months and return to France without any issues before the expiry date of "récépissé de demande de carte de séjour"?Regards,Anjana

Hi all,I've been in France for 5 months using Lebara for my phone network, and been putting off getting wifi at my place, but now it's looking like I need to get wifi for my place too. Instead of paying for mobile wifi and wifi at home, I was hoping to just get wifi for my phone and then hotspot to my laptop when at home. But it seems Lebara don't offer unlimited data, the max they offer has a limit of 15gb, and if I'm using it on my phone and laptop I know I'll go through that in no time. Does anyone know of a network provider in France that offers unlimited data per month for maybe 20-30 euro? I'd prefer if they also offered calls but it's not the end of the world. I know there are deals like this in Ireland where I'm from but I'm having a hard time finding that here.Thanks in advance!
I'm looking at converting part of a Hotel to apartments in the Mont Blanc area. Parking is proving a problem. I'm told that 1.5 spaces has to be created for every 50m2 of converted space. There is a garden that could be converted to parking, but to get to it any car would have to cross a pavement and remove free public parking spaces on the road; so for every two spaces created the town would lose one public space. Does anybody know of a solution or an alternative that might be acceptable to the local mairie

How can I post a message about something which is probably of interest to the Anglophone community but is not specific to this region... For example,... I have a friend offering free accommodation in the south of Spain in exchange for some assistance with two houses Or,... Looking for a job elsewhere in France without having to look at every single Angloinfo site one by one ... Or,... looking for a second-hand netbook computer with Qwerty keyboard in France... In brief, there are many occasions when it is useful to contact the whole anglophone community in France and not just one particular region. Is this possible anyway ??? Cheers Beddha
