comment How to stay comfortable in beds found in American hotels?
@Karlson And I am pretty sure that if you read my post again you will even find this possibility listed. The question is more about getting cultural insight about something really surprising for some foreigners (believe me). How American people deal with it. I don't know if Mark Mayo is American but is advice of sleeping in fetal position seems amazing (it makes me laugh). Is it a stategy that most American really have?

@AndrewFerrier I don't really agree with you. It is true that 5 star hotels are very uniform and generally tend to satisfy to the customs of there most common customers i.e. Americans. Also many 5 star franchise are American. Maybe it influence other hotels somehow but lot's of pillow is certainly not in hotel quality standard everywhere over the world. By the way I was not really speaking about hotels as I only experiment this in furnished apartments and guest house until now. In this kind of accommodation in France you certainly won't find 6 pillows on your bed.

@Karlson You mean which situation ? colleagues greeting before a meeting, friends meeting in the street, a guy entering a shop and saying hi to his friend owner...

comment What's the deal with the “string people” in central Paris?
I don't agree with the previous comments. Saying it in French won't makes you look French. The point is to not look lost or naive about what they are doing... Also I think ignoring is often a bad strategy. It makes you look a bit weak or afraid. It is irritating for them. And seriously, why would they stop if it is not clear that you won't say yes ?

@jwenting This is the website of the 'diplomatie' which is the french diplomatic corps (ambassadors and consuls). The French version only contains travel advice as they are specifically targeted to french people.
