      What's the latest you can arrive? I have a bit of a conflict, but would still like to come, even for the last hour or so.

    Is there parking around the Embassy? Or would it be better to metro it?

    January 22, 2014

    • Greg

      Sometimes there are a lot of parking spots near the embassy, but I cannot guarantee this. The metro is about a 5 to 10 minute walk.

    can you purchase tickets at the embassy the evening of? or is advanced purchase necessary?

    January 22, 2014

    • Greg

      We prefer advance so we can arrange for catering, but if you are 100% sure you are coming and want to pay on site, let me know. Please bring exact change because we cannot run a credit card on site.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
