I am having a really tough time in France since my French is survivalist at best and that doesn't seem to work with locals. I thought I'd post this on expats.SE and hope that I receive help.
Purchasing stamps and envelopes
- I am unable to buy stamps and envelopes and I don't know where to. The local La Poste is open only M-F and during the times I work so I cannot go to the post office.
- The tabacs I go to do not have stamps EVER!
- I have gone online to the La Poste website and have ordered stamps but I don't know what kind of envelope to get and I am at my wits end. Should I get a "Lettre verte" a "letter prioritae" or a "letter reccomandee"? I need to send mail within France and to the United States and India and I just don't know what to do.
Any help on this matter would be appreciated.
On the Travel.SE site, there exists an interesting question on combining French stamps, which I have only found now.
