Paris in the spring time

Paris vista

Was in Paris last weekend. Caught up with a good buddy, went to a great party in a lavish Parisian apartment, and visited the most excellent Centre Pompidou . Domino fans take note of the URL.

Memories of Paris

Us in Paris Hitler in Paris

Like most tourists to Paris, you get your snap taken here and forget what has gone before. It is chilling to think that you have stood in the same place as Hitler. Seeing the picture makes me realise how recently it all happened. When I was a kid I used to think that such a thing would never happen again, and yet in reality we are always closer to the nightmare than we think.

Paris 2

Over exposed and a different view

Amazing city. And that metro system puts the London underground to shame. Trips on the Paris Metro of the same duration as what I take in London felt much shorter. This is due to the noise on the tube. The tube screeches and squeals through the heat whereas the trains I used in Paris ran on tyres, and the effect is a smooth quiet ride. The Metro felt much cleaner, everything on the tube is coated with a layer of carcinogenic brake dust. Combined with the heat, no wonder my stress level on the tube is so high.
