that, hand signals, and listening with more than your ears can get you just about anything. remember to always use in combination by adding please and thank you and hello and goodbye. I think I will make these before every trip now... anyone want to buy one?
as far as museums - I LOVE it when it is one famous person's work charted through his (or her... unfortunately there aren't many "hers" here in france) life. today was chagall and matisse.
Matisse and the mona lisa have been the only things they haven't let us take pictures of here - another thing I love (I still snuck some at the matisse, though)
"I copy that" is walkie-talkie talk for - I understand, will do, gotcha, ok, alright, yup, uh-huh, and much more depending on the inflection of the voice.
