Paris (Départment Paris), France

Here is another one from Chandra, who is doing a trip through Europe. This one is from Paris, so as usual, I need to figure out what a "county-equivalent" in France would be. It looks like France is separated into numbered (two digit) "départements," which show up in postal codes, social security-equivalent numbers, and even vehicle number-plates.

Paris is in the Paris départment, which is number 75 (out of 99). You can even see it on the postmark! That's so cool. I wish our counties were numbered like that. It would make it much easier!

I prefer names than numbers.

I'm just saying I prefer both :)
