I do not know how many nights Im planned to be hosted, probably the two or three first nights, so I can see how the area looks like, I can prepare myself, practise a bit my english and then go meet him.
>I have money in case I need to go to the hotel if he wants me to leave but I think being with people is so much better and I do not really see the point in going to a hotel on my own. I had many sufers, visiting me in Paris, it was fantastic and it gave me the will of traveling like that from now.

That's a resounding yes, super cute french girl! If she actually makes it here, we are throwing her a "I'm an adorable Parisian" party and you're all invited.

For those who don't know what Couchsurfing.org is, you should check it out! We love the hell out of it.

Piercings and pearls... She is SO French. Very cute. :)

Stevens Square.... That sounds familiar. I'll bet if you said where it is, I'd know EXACTLY where that was. If you know what I mean.

I think we should even buy her a tranquilizer gun or maybe handcuffs.

well she's coming from France in order to seduce her man. I think it'd be funny if we were to... help?

I think we should lobby for her to stay in Minnesota.

She's 21. I think we should lobby for her to stay in school. :)

This is fantastique!

Please invite me to said party: I can horrify her with my terrible provincial accent and forgotten words in the middle of sentences.

She didn't. She ended up meeting him in Italy instead, and he mostly ignored her and watched pornography. Then they got in a fight and he kicked her out. SAD. If she had come here we would have found plenty of people to cheer her up, it seems.
