The largest clock in Paris
I'm late posting tonight because I was at a very interesting networking party. When I left I realized that I badly needed gas, so I started looking for a gas station (they are hard to find in Paris, especially at night). I ended up passing by Gare de Lyon, where I took this photo of the Station clock, which is located up top a tower that was built with the station in 1900. This is actually one of the 4 dials that compose this clock which is considered to be the largest public clock in Paris. It has been working since 1902 with a little interruption between 1999 and 2005 due to a big storm that caused it to stop. (Here is a broader view from Wikipedia).
