I guess it could make sense in food & dining, since tipping is primarily attached to eating at restaurants.

Are we supposed to tip mods at the end of the year? A Xmas bonus type thing?

Asking because yours is in question after that snarky attitude.

And supposedly the Middle East and Africa have some tipping culture, but no one goes there.

I tipped in the Middle East, but it is more about the gesture than the percentage. Like leaving one dollar is the same as leaving 10, if you tip, it is a sign of the good service no matter the amount.

Yeah, usually we expect 10% of whatever you donated to the board each year.

I'll pretend you're in Iran and tip you 1% since it's all the same there

We're starting to plan a trip here for the late spring. Where should we stay with a 4.5-year old?

Hotel or private residence?
Neighborhood?
Do we need to rent a car?

My wife lived here as a child but hasn't been back since 2008.

A good Paris includes the grand marquee experiences AND some exploration of small neighborhoods and good hole-in-wall establishments, mostly traversed on foot:

Agreed. We brought a stroller but my three year old ended up turning into a real walker and walked everywhere or took the subway. Like I was shocked how far she could go. Def don’t get a car, easy public trans.

We stayed a few minutes walk north of The Louvre and liked that as a central location. There was shopping nearby if we needed groceries or warmer pants for the kid etc.

we're staying in an airbnb - 3rd arrondissement. taking public transportation and walking.

Can't imagine going there with a little, but imagine a stroller and a shit ton of patience go a long way.
