Paris is nice but also very shaddy
Gypsies are everywhere and they look like normal people. If you have more stuff (phone, camera, wallet, ipod) all flashing around they will try to steal something from you. They will come in 2s or 3s and just ignore anyone that asks you for anything at all. If you want to be safe, be mean. Like GO AWAY NOW! I DON'T NEED ANYTHING.
Insider Tip:The newest scam is asking if you speak English and getting you to sign some crap about saving animals or something.
