*notes*

(1) One of the 5 big train station in Paris (North, East, Lyon, St Lazarre,
MontParnasse)
(2) This is a proverb for which I know no English equivalent.
(3) i.e. credit card ('puce' = flea = chip) No equivalent in the states yet
It is a credit card which has a chip instead of magnetic strips (french
patent) used for phone cards (we don't use coins no more) or VISA.
BTW: in France, credit cards don't give you credit, they are more like
paying cards (plastic cash).
(4) 'periph' = peripherique = circular highway that surrounds Paris (even more
that delimitates Paris from the (close) suburbs.
(5) Fresnes: prison in Paris (as famous as Alcatraz in the US)
(6) better translated as head? (NO, old 7 neither)
(7) Lucky luke is a comic cowboy caracter, The man who soots faster than his
shadow, famous in France and part of Europe. He is with his horse Joly
Jumper and (both) smoke rolled cigarettes. He is always called upon when
the 4 Daltons escape from the state prison (and they are very stupid and
mean, and flunk everything they attempt), they are the public enemies #1
and scare everybody with their reputation. At the end, Lucky luke always
rides in the sunset singing I'm a poor lonesome cow boy.
