Web Tourism: Great Finds from France

For some time now I've been wondering why France seems to be a johnny-come-lately country on the Internet. From what I've found in the last couple of days, it may have been worth the wait.

The first French site, ABC Paris Live, has 58 pretty-as-a-picture webcams, radio, TV and blogs. There is so much there, I barely have had time to explore it--go take a look.

The second French site, netvibes.com, features a webpage similar to Yahoo or Google home pages, but different. You can access your e-mail, do Internet searches including Google and wikipedia, store up to a gig of information, read headlines, and plenty more. You might want to go and see whether it could work for you. It is very elegant.

Speaking of France, with 4th of July celebrations about to begin, you might want to brush up on your knowledge of the Marquis de Lafayette. His help in the American Revolution was so valuable, Ben Franklin noted that he was "infinitely esteemed and beloved here."

While we're celbrating the American Revolution, remember that there are still plenty of countries who have citizens seeking freedoms that every American enjoys. You don't need be of noble birth or take a long journey by sea to help let freedom ring. In honor of our Independence, and in memory of the good Marquis, you might want to take a look around the Internet for a worthy cause that will help others and see if you can lend a hand.
