I wish i had a digital camera......

Most of my visits to Paris were made before digital cameras were commercially available so I have had to use a few photos from someone else.

First photo by "Eric Rougier/FromParis.com" and "http://www.fromparis.com"

    For several years now they have been promising to install bicycle lanes on the Champs-Élysées by 2014. I'll be interested in seeing this summer if they have finally done it.
    Also the new mayor has promised to reduce the speed limit all over Paris to 30kph (= 18.641mph).

    Dao, I appreciate your humor. Not so sure Parisians will. I was surprised be the size of the Mona Lisa when I first saw her in person. I thought she was a big woman. On canvas...on canvas. Excusez-moi. ;-)

    Thks for your nice comments about Chambord. Just tried to contribute, avoiding to repeat the same tips than others. I really enjoyed reading your HP :) BTW, your local custom tip (France) translation is ... so so :)

    so people jump from many spots. hell, eiffel tower is symbolic and beautiful enough for anyone to suicide on it. just because some people are dumb enough/depressed enough to do it doesn't mean people shouldn't visit the tower.
