Going upstream...

Yesterday I went to a new shopping mall in the 15th arrondissement and on the way back I walked along the quai (embankment)  for a while. I was absolutely amazed to see how strong the current is on the Seine at the moment and how hard it is for a péniche (flat boat that runs on the Seine) to go upstream. Of course it's hard to realize on a photo, but you can see how deep the tip of the boat is in the water. Have a great Sunday everyone, I'm about to leave for Denver. I will still comment from there of course!


  1. You put it very well into words, And I can understand what you mean on the photo.
    There are so many things I love with the strong currents such as their sounds but not only.
    The new shopping mall you went to is certainly the Beaugrelle one. I went there last week. Nice place for shopping, isn'it?
    Have a safe and comfortable flght to the United States.

  2. The current certainly does feel strong, just looking at the pic.

    Enjoy your trip!

  3. Bon voyage, mon capitain -- et merci!
