Good Morning Friends~
Hope you are having a wonderful Friday, and are looking forward to a great weekend. We sure are, even though we are still playing catch-up. Yard mowing, flower bed weeding, pool algae... in Florida this stuff is year round! No break in the winter...but we don't shovel snow either!
Today is Metro Day. The metro in Paris has served Scott and I well over the past four years. We absolutely love it, and have only been lost once... this trip! Days later we realized we were at the correct stop all along, we just went out the wrong sortie (exit) and ended up on an unfamiliar street. That's what we get for changing apartments, and being in a unfamiliar neighborhood at midnight...
It's all good though. We think the metro is a masterful achievement, and if I lived in Paris, I doubt seriously I would ever own a car. I would take the metro during the week, and if I wanted to get out of town...I would take the train. I only missed my car a few times, like when I was SMASHED against people that have a different idea of hygiene than me, but that was rare, and only during the afternoon rush hour(s).
Here are a few shots I took. The music down there is incredible, and I grabbed my camera a few times to document it. I usually just walk right by these musicians, sometimes throwing a few euro in their box, but I'm so glad I took a few seconds to get it on tape.
Remember, these videos are VERY unprofessional, and I was being jostled sometimes in the crowd, AND I was trying to video discreetly...didn't want to look like a tourist! Needless to say as you watch this, I failed miserably at being discreet, but I sincerely hope you enjoy a peek... (and I don't have time to edit, nor a desire to learn how right now...so bear with me).
So that's it for today. Hope these aren't too tedious to watch :) .
Have a wonderful weekend.
Your part-time Parisian/American friend~
