Chaque jour en France // Every day in France

I just wanted to share this video with about what happens in France each day. Find out how many cigarettes are smoked, how many baguettes are eaten, how much Nutella is consumed, and how many tourists got to the Eiffel Tower in a typical day in France. This is a good video for those of you learning French and want some practice listening to numbers in French.

Hope you enjoy the video! // J'espère que cette video vous fera plaisir ! :)

Welcome Orlando!

Hello everyone,
My name is Orlando. As a new contributor to De San Diego à Paris I will be providing a new perspective of the times and experiences of a California kid living in Paris as a study abroad student. Like Laura, I chose to spend a year studying the french language and culture in Paris. You may already recognize me from a few of Laura's Vlogs, photos or mentions in a post, but I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself in a little more detail.
