Definitely the tourist season!

If you needed another proof that tourists are in Paris at the moment, here is one: I took this shot on the Champs Elysées, near the Arc de Triomphe and these are all the tuk-tuk (cyclo-pousses in French) that were waiting for customers! Exactly like at a taxi stand... Talking about taxis in Paris, let me invite you to read this article by David Lebovitz (who normally writes about food!) where you can learn how the authorities try their best to make the life of Parisians (and tourists!) miserable when it comes to finding a taxi in Paris (all this because taxis are a powerful lobby that can block the streets of Paris and paralyse the city!). 


  1. That is a very cool photo, and cyclo-pousse is my new favorite word.

  2. There's always so much to learn when you visit a foreign city. I never knew most of what the article says about taxis. Everywhere you turn - well, everywhere I turn - there's an opportunity for a faux pas.
