comment Public transport options between Paris and EuroDisney
Note that for many tourists the Paris Visite pass actually costs more than individual tickets. But with trips to Marne-la-Vallée, there's a good chance that it's worth it.

comment Extension of validity of French identity cards
Where do they get their information? The problem with extended validity French ID cards is that France says that their validity has been extended, but there's no indication on the card itself, and some governments have said that whatever France says, they would only accept the validity date that's written on the card.

comment Is the Lao / Myanmar border slated to open soon for foreigners?
@Tom The 1737 Great Geographical and Critical Dictionary by Bruzen La Martinière lists “Lao, or Laos” as a kingdom (singular), known as either “Lao” or “kingdom of the Laos”.

comment Is the Lao / Myanmar border slated to open soon for foreigners?
@Tom Are you sure about that etymological interpretation? The country name “Laos” is singular in modern French and the s is not silent. Looking at 19th century or even 18th century documents on Google Books, I can't find any occurrence of “les Laos” that designates the country, only the people, and the country is “le Laos”. So if the country name was originally plural, that was more than a century before colonization.

comment Do PINs added to chip-and-sign cards work at chip-and-PIN terminals?
As an additional warning, note that just because you have a chip-and-pin card doesn't mean you will be able to use it everywhere. For example, my French chip-and-pin card doesn't work in Dutch train ticket machines, and not in all German ones — unlike most shops (who can use swip-and-sign cards anyway), they don't use the Visa or Mastercard networks.
