People wait at the counter in a branch of the Banque de France in Paris on February 16, 2012 to convert French old banknotes in francs to euros. Banknotes are officially convertible up to February 17, 2012. France started using the euro currency on January 1, 2002 like the other members of the Eurozone. AFP PHOTO THOMAS SAMSON
