comment 5 weeks in Peru + Bolivia + Chile, is too little time?
@Patrick Investigate going via another airport in Europe (Madrid, Paris, …). A former colleague of mine who traveled between Rio de Janeiro and Paris several times reported that it was cheaper to take a train to Brussels then a “flight” to Rio which actually consisted of a bus to Paris followed by a flight to Rio, than it was to book only the Paris–Rio flight! So shop around.

The link is appropriate, but what you state is very different from what that web page states.

comment Inexpensive eating-out food in western Europe
Places like McDonald actually aren't good value for money if you want filling food, at least in France. If you want something hot, at least in Paris, Greek/Kebab places often have comparatively large portions. Buying ingredients separately is universally cheaper.

For the French part: How do you avoid the hefty toll fee on the French highways?

comment Where to print science posters in Paris?
@MarcelC. This question is not so much about which shop to go to, but how to locate such a shop at short notice. This requires local expertise more than knowledge of printing shops. So I think it's a travel question, as much as “where are the skiing resorts located” or “how to get cheap plane tickets”.

comment Where to print science posters in Paris?
Walk around the Latin Quarter, especially near Jussieu or rue Saint-Jacques. You're bound to hit a printing shop that can do this.
