I sent you a PM about this. I wonder if you got it. I'm asking only because I know you're very thorough and would have acknowledged receipt.

BTW, I've never seen a n00b send anyone a donation.  :)

I read it. I didnt said noob...but nabob (nabab in french, you perhaps better know the word tycoon).
Im just a working poor in fact. Despite my studies, once the bills paid there is nothing left. Sometimes I think I should have done something else, But probably I wouldn't want to be in the situation of maher either (I coulnt do ramadan if I were muslim Im not courageous enough, in fact lately I put on weight, probably drinking too much beer and eating too many pizzas - tonight the couscous didnt last long. Perhaps Im going to finish up like Elvis but without fame, who knows)

its a luxury to live here, but its very expensive.

I can't donate because I am 14 years old and I don't even have a job.

Thats ok akaubee. If youre present here and if you contribute by posting useful things, its the most important. It seems maher is not answering for the meantime anyway.

@Scarface - yes, I'm aware that your financial situation isn't the best. I just supplied you with the information you were looking for. You're a decent man and you'd be happy to help Maher if it were possible.

That video of the Eiffel Tower - did you take it yourself with a cell phone camera or something?

@akaubee - thanks for being concerned. I agree with what Scarface told you.

the video...with my cellphone. its in fact nearer from me than it seems, the camera is not really good.
I give you a map, I'm on the black cross:


as for the mcdonalds of the champs elysees it was the first mcdo in paris where I had a lunch...
By the way I discovered they dont have the same price for the cheeseburgers everywhere: franchised mcdo are more expensive. Then If you want to have a cheap cheeseburger at 1euro go to the mcdo of republic or opera they are not franchised.

@Scarface - with what program did you draw the black cross? I don't know anything about photoediting and I'm wondering what simple program to use to do what you did.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean by `franchised' mcdo's. At least here you can't just open a hamburger place and call it `McDonalds', you have to buy a franchise and go by their rules, i.e. , they're all franchised.

A cheeseburger for 1€ is an awesome price. Do they also charge for rental space if you want to eat your burger there?

to humbert: I used paint...
you seem to know what franchise mean. Here some mcdo are not franchised, the owner is mcdonald (only a few). No they dont charge if you eat on the spot.

to maher: I sent a delegation to fetch the money. if you want it, send a pm, otherwise nervermind.

I don't remember if that McDonalds told me the food would be more costly if it wasn't take out, but I do remember being told something and looking out onto the Champ Elysses and wondering how to eat a hamburger in the middle of that sidewalk with no place to even sit down. To me this was highly unusual since nowhere before did I ever encounter such a situation.
