Paris hates my credit cards. went to a cafe near jardain des tulleries. relaxed. service with a smile. small change for great coffe and croiisont. went to le grand palais. Ceasar Auvgustus exhibition. great great great!!! love that place. saw a map of rome in the time of augustus. shiwed da mrs circo massimo on the map. so she knows stones history. good feeling about today!!!

I know how you're feeling!
Air France lost my baggage on my trip from Berlin. Took me 3 hours to get from CDG to St.Germain because of the train strike. Chatelet was chaos. No taxi could drive me from St. Germain station to the address I was going to, because of the taxi strike. Had to walk for another hour.

But I'm so ready to see The Rolling Stones again!
If they play Rambler and Jumpin' with the same intensity as in Berlin on Wednesday, it'll be worth all the stress.

Just hope the transport will work out OK before and after the show!

It seems that right now there are very few RER B trains (none in fact) going from "Chatelet" to "La Plaine Stade de France", they all end at "Gare du Nord" : [www.ratp.fr]

RER D seems a bit better, can't be worse really, with trains every 20/40 minutes : [www.transilien.com]

Actually it seems that right now RER B trains end at "Gare du Nord" (run by RATP) but you can change there and catch another one (run by SNCF) going to CDG via Stade de France, here is the RT schedule for these trains : [www.ratp.fr]

There is also a strike at the Tour Eiffel; for those who wanted to visit, you can't. Fortunately at this time, or soon, you are probably going to the SdF.

Vive la France... eye rolling smiley

Hello from Gate R! I am number 20 or so in line. I first went to gate S but everyone else there had Pelouse Or and not Pelouse VIP tickets. So I decided to take my chances at R instead. After all,all that counts is the bar code. It's now 10.40am and the sun is just coming out to the west side of the stadium. Gotta stop using my mobile for internet now,the roaming rates are gonna kill me...anyway,everyone have a good one! Looks like I will be on Ronnie's side,but hey,that's a first! My 7th show tonight. I am wearing a blue cap, black jeans and a Bergen 2006 event tee (Norwegian flag tongue). Come and say hi!

See You there!

RC : back in 98 during the football World Cup in Paris, some fans thought it was a "good" idea to visit the surroundings of the SDF. They got robbed blind in broad daylight.

That was 1998, believe me things have not improved there... So yeah, SDF is a "no security" district.

But yeah Roman feel free to wander in St. Denis after the show. I can recommend the "Francs Moisins" area at midnight if you wanna make new friends in no
time...

I really hope everyone there has a wonderful time this evening. And hopefully the transport won't be too stressful.

Really wish I was there! After all my dithering, I decided to go for it...too late... I tried to get things together this morning to make a Eurostar train - and am now going to admit defeat. I just wouldn't make it in time. sad smiley On the plus side, I can stop stressing and just focus on my Rome trip. smiling smiley

I'm definitely going to visit Paris again (haven't been for years) some time soon (and at least, I've found several decent hotels I'd like to stay in).

Anyway, all of you there - enjoy! Grzegorz67 - I hope you find a ticket!

And thank you to all those who gave me advice about Paris. It was appreciated and some of it will still be useful for when I do finally visit Paris.

In addition to this problem of security, when you are a tourist and want to enjoy your trip + concert, it's a shame to visit sad and awful areas. Bad memories at the end.
Too much beautiful things to see in Paris in other areas --and safe--.

Sorry for my bad english but I think you understand my point of view. I experienced myself several times abroad: everything "around" the concert itself contributes to make a concert-trip unforgettable, including the transportation, hotel and sightseeing.
