The Daunting Paris Metro

It may seem daunting but memorizing it is as easy as memorizing any major city's metro or subway system. It's not really about memorizing it really, just knowing how to quickly and efficiently read the maps and make sure you're going in the correct direction and switching lines at the right places. You can buy, last I checked, what is called a carnet of metro tickets 10 for the price of nine or something like this, so it's cheaper each day to just buy however many carnet you think you'll need, and I don't think they expire or anything like that.
