My visit to Paris
My name is Aliagha Sharifov, live in Baku Azerbaijan – N.Tusi str. 49/14.
Cell phones: (+994)50 3340050 and (+994)55 3340050
Please be aware that I have been travelling to France from 15th till 19th of February and there were lots of amazing places to visit in Paris. But my purpose is not to share my impression of sightseeing but the event which I was disappointed with.
On 18th of February I decided to change 100 US dollars into euro and therefore I went to the change master which locates not far away from Noterdam De Paris. Rates were shown on the wall and exchange rate for USD was 1.3. I gave 100USD to cashier but he returned me 64 Euros saying that there are some taxes included and service fee. I said that I am not happy with this please return my 100 USD back. Cashier said he would not return it back. After long time of chat with him I asked to call police, but cashier refused to do that.
There was a shop next to exchange master where ladies advised to call “17” which is “An Emergency Police Call” number. I called 17 several times. Approximately after 5 times try and 10 minutes wait someone answered my call who could not speak in English, but hardly could explain that I should go to the nearest “Police Office”.
I went to the nearest police office. At the entrance 2 police officers met me and asked the reason why I need a help from police. They directed me to the desk inside where I had to report the problem I was facing with. Man at the desk absolutely did not speak in English but took my passport details and gave a blank to fill up. I filled up blank and set to wait when I will be interviewed. After approx. 20 minutes wait one of the police officers who met me at the police office approached me and said that they are closing and I have to leave. I told him that I need a help, how they can close office. He said I can go to the commissariat.
I was really disappointed because I always have been thinking that France is a one of the lead country where Justice and human rights are priority. Police refused to help me. My expectation was to get a support from Paris police – does not matter positive for me or not, any help in order to get a solution in the issue with exchange. But I was mistaken…
In my country – in Azerbaijan police works 24 hours a day and always supports people, helps to solve problems. In Azerbaijan if someone calls emergency calls he immediately gets an answer without delays.
Please be advised that the purpose of writing this all is not to ask anybody to return my money back. I don’t need that.
However, it was great to travel to Paris - such a wonderful and historical place in Europe.
