A Quick Overview Of La Seine
La Seine is the river that flows through Paris. Don't say it like 'sane'- you pronounce it 'sehn', not to sound like like a lucid mind-state. The southern bank of the Seine is referred to as La Rive Gauche, which means 'the left bank'. La rive gauche is considered more fashionable and artistic than the northern bank (la rive droite).
There are many historic bridges over the Seine in Paris - the most famous is the Pont Neuf, which means 'new bridge'. You can see a great deal of Paris by taking one of the bateaux mouches which are open excursion boats which cruise along the Seine. A 'mouche' is a 'fly' in French (as in the annoying insect), and 'bateau' means 'boat'. Both the singular (bateau mouche) and the plural (bateaux mouches) sound exactly the same in French (bah/toh moosh).
