<b><u>MIND YOUR MANNERS!</u></b>

When dining in France, DO NOT (I repeat, DO NOT) start chomping on your bread before your food arrives! Bread in France is considered part of your meal, not an appetizer, even if you see it on the table before your first dish arrives. If you ask for a drink before your meal, do not eat bread with it! Surely we don't want the French people to think that we tourists are an uncouth bunch, do we? And if they find out that we are members of VT.... <i>Oh man</i>....
