Pop-culture excitement: Paris

We highly recommend that you read books, watch movies, listen to music from the country you are going to.  It will help prepare you for the fantastic experience of what you are going to encounter and even better, give you something to talk about with the locals!  A little interest and knowledge of your new adoptive culture goes a long way.
