Rocket Star!


Every year in Paris, there is "La fête des transports et de la mobilité" (Mobility and transports festival). The current one is the 3rd one and it will feature several means of transportation such as boats (on the Seine obviously!), electric cars, trains, planes... and even rockets like this one that I photographed this morning on my way to work. I must say it's quite surprising to see these unusual vehicles in the streets of Paris! More - in French only - here.

  1. What a great contrast between the past (Obelisque) and the future (rocket).

    All I saw on the way to work was a lot of traffic!

  2. Has anybody tried to make the list of all those Fêtes this festive mayor of Paris has instituted or developed ?

    Fête des mères, des grands-mères, des associations, technoparade, gay pride, du vélo, de' la lecture, du cinéma, des transports etc..etc..

    we must be getting close to one Fête per day...

  3. Alain - thanks for reminding me of another reason I love France. Life is for living, loving and laughing - not for whining, worrying and working!

    All I saw on the way to work was a lot of traffic! LOL Suzy P!

  7. Maybe I'm old fashioned but, I don't think they add anything, to the streets of Paris.

  8. Well, Alain, even the ancient Greeks knew that the Fêtes determine our destiny. Future tents, as it were. I definitely prefer Michael's three L's over the three W's. But that's subjunctive.

    Ow. That even hurt me.
