Hi, I've just moved to Paris and am looking for a weekly game of football. I'm not that great so not interested in playing in leagues or serious teams just a friendly kickabout with the lads 1 or 2 times a week (and maybe a couple of beers afterwards...). I am staying in the 14eme. Cheeears

HiDoes anyone happen to know of any stained glass art classes going on anywhere In Paris, ideally where the instructor is able to speak some English as my French is not very good at the moment! Alternatively any jewelry making classes? I'm a novice at both so beginners courses would be great! Thanks in advance for any replies!
We all know we can hop on the train and head South, but for the month of July and August the SNCF have great offers on from the Gare du Nord to the towns around the Baie de Somme. So if you want an affordable day/picnic on the beach and at the sea - go North for a change... Adults at less 50% and kids at only 5€ on the Saturdays/Sundays and on the public holidays during July and August. More info avaialbe at the Gare du Nord or here (in French) www.ter-sncf.com/picardie
Two great weekends if you are crazy about riding, horses, getting dressed up or having a flutter or just getting out of Paris and into the fresh air: Prix du Jockey 7/6/9 http://www.prixdujockeyclub.france-galop.com/ and the Prix de Diane on the 14/6/9 http://www.prix-de-diane.com/ Chantilly is about 25 minutes by ter from the Gare du Nord and about 45 minutes by RER - SNCF: Chantilly-Gouvieux. Hippodrome is walking distance from the station, 'spose you could rent a Ferrari though - if you wanted to make an entrance :-)
