1- The name of the fabric we call denim comes from this French city.

2- The French hypermarche chain was founded in Annecy in 1960 and is now part of a group by the same name that is one of the world's very top retailers.

3- Sur le THIS TOWN'S BRIDGE
L'on y danse, l'on y danse
Sur le THIS TOWN'S BRIDGE
L'on y danse tous en rond

This ancient bridge is still there long after this kid's song was made popular in France and abroad - what town's bridge is it and what river did it once bridge (but now only half bridges as part of it has fallen away - you can still dance on the ramining part however.

4- The French military memorial stands high above Paris, in Suresnes, overlooking the Bois de Boulogne - occupies a once military fort that during the Nazi Occupation was used as a prison and execution place where hundreds of French resistance folks were executed - today the French military memorial also incudes an American Military Cemetery with 1,541 Americans buried there.

5- In Amsterdam or any Dutch city what could you buy at one of the many FEBOs?

6- This windmill group is close to Amsterdam and makes a great easy half-day trip there - take a train to Koog Zaandijk and then a short walk to XXXxx, the name of the Windmill Complex - there is also a museum of Zuider Zee live on the site.

7- Mussolini and the fascists built a brand new city on the outskirts of Rome - today it remains as a vast collection of sleek modern (for the 1930s) architecture - what are the three letters that stand for its name?

8- This large German city is known for its Weissenhof Estate, a showcase of modern sleek Bauhaus architecture designed as workers' housing but today all gentrified.

9- The British Isle is known for its tail-less cats!

10 - A French boulangerie often takes day old bread and makes out of it this cheap baked good you can buy - a thick heavy thing called xxxxxxx?

11- Are you Charlie?
