Rowing through Paris
Yesterday (Sunday) something pretty rare happened on the Seine: a rowing race. It was organized by the Chamber of commerce of Paris and the participants were students from Les Grandes Ecoles (mostly Business or Engineers schools). These kind of races rarely happen in Paris because it makes it compulsory to stop all commercial traffic, something thepeople who run Les Bateaux Mouches don't really appreciate ;). I remember being in one of these races about 15 years ago and God was it hard - but really fantastic due to the fantastic scenery. More photos here.
Discuss Paris events and much more in the brand new PDP forum.
