I was skimming the headlines on a French newspaper website this morning and came across an article about bikini hair removal. I ended up learning some new cultural vocabulary. What I've always heard women call a "landing strip" here in the U.S. is apparently called a "ticket de métro" in France. Have you ever ridden the metro in Paris? Think about the magnetic strip on the back of the ticket.

I just checked my desk drawer and found two leftover metro tickets from my last visit to Paris. Front and back.

@curt

Curt I see tickets de metro I don’t know if anything else is written on them I’m not able to see everyone’s pictures or gifs I’m hoping when gab has added everything I will👩‍🦳

@ceecee5
Ah, I see. Well, in the meantime, here's a direct link to the image. Perhaps you'll be able to click on it.
