2. Baguettes in a vending machine

In the U.S., we have vending machines but nothing like this. When the boulangerie has closed up shop for the day or you don't want to brave the line, just walk on up to the baguette vending machine for your daily carb fix and prepare to be amazed.

3. Quick farm-fresh milk in a machine

Once you've picked up your baguette, head over to the 24-hour milk machine for a bottle of creamy deliciousness any time of day or night. Sure beats the stuff in the supermarket!

4. Post office is open when?

Even for France, being open 2.5 hours/day is bad. Don't count on your letter getting there anytime soon. Yikes!

5. Party on the Paris metro

Forget about musicians and beggars -- keep that wine flowing all the way until your stop on the Metro. Nice to see the French are keepin' it classy.

Strap in your bottle of wine and get pedaling. Why the heck not? Totally French and totally a bike must-have.
