Do you remember the photo of Le Pont Levant de la rue de Crimée, that I posted before my vacation? Well, here is another - and much broader - view of it. I actually experimented it for real! How? By taking part in the cruise that Canauxrama (no, that is not paid advertising!) offers on the Canal Saint Martin. For once I posted two photos, so that you can see how it works: on this one it's up, on the one below, taken a few seconds before, it's still down. Very impressive and very beautiful (thanks to the lighting of the buildings I must say). I loved every minute of this cruise, even if there are a little too many locks for me!
PS : on a different note, Jeff (a real true visitor to PDP!) is trying to organize a little PDP gathering for Labor Day in Chicago, if you're around and would like to join him, do let me know and I'll put you in contact.
