No, not you, dear reader. That is what the guy on the right must have thought when the guy on the left started to practise his trumpet skills…. 😀

I took this photo at the Dutch Open Solar Boat Challenge in Goes on June 19, 2009.





Maps on postcards: Paris Métropolitain

20 06 2009

The Paris Métro or Métropolitain, in French: Métro de Paris, is a metro system in Paris, France. It is a symbol of the city and its station architecture is influenced by Art Nouveau. It has 16 lines, mostly underground, and a total length of 214 km. There are 300 stations.

I guess that everyone who has been to Paris has also been in the Paris Métro. Well, I have travelled by Paris Métro quite often.

I received two different postcards, both showing Paris Métropolitain. Here’s the first card:
