A fun way to visit Paris

If you're looking for a different way of visiting the Paris covered passages, here is a fun thing to do. Every Saturday and Wednesday (and more often during holidays), you can help Jean-Jacques de La Tour, solve a cold murder case (very cold, as it took place in 1870 in Le Passage Jouffroy!). Along the way you come across witnesses and clues... All this is fake of course and the witnesses are all actors (like this "Gavroche" that I photographed in this photo) and part of the L'enigme des passages couverts visit. The fun part is that I came across this tour by sheer coincidence, as I was going back home.


  1. WOW... and that actor also looks so sterotypically French!
    Such a moody "digital noir"(well, it's not film, is it?) look you gave to the scene.

  2. Wow, that sounds like so much fun! I will have to check that out next time I am in Paris!

  3. Oh how fun! I love a good murder mystery; and this one is especially good because it is interactive in real-life.

    Love the B&W photo -- super cool!

  4. What a great find, Eric! Young Jean Jacques is very enterprising. Is it done in French (I hope) or English, pour les touristes? Either way, this actually does look like a ton of fun!

  5. How wonderful ~ I've walked up this passage to the Metro St-Paul. It would be an ideal crime site (mock bien sur)

  6. Murder in Le Passage Jouffroy in 1871? The murderer is always somebody who lives near to the scene. Who do we know...? Aha! (But I never suspected they were vampires!)

  7. I like the scene, it's like a scene from a film. I miss a cigarette in the scene.

  8. Very cool!! I love murder mysteries! I've done a few similar to this where you have actors and people try to figure out "whodunit". It is really fun--and I actually won once! :)

  9. MY firemen just send a letter asking for money. They should
    do this instead and get to know the neighbors, that send money.

    after taking Excel for just a few short weeks. And renewed sexual prowess won’t be your only benefit:

    you’ll also feel less anxious, more relaxed, and healthier overall, thanks to the bonus properties of

  19. Misoprostol tablet
    What is this medicine?

    MISOPROSTOL helps to prevent stomach ulcers in patients using nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDS, drugs commonly used for arthritis, inflammation, and pain). Misoprostol reduces the amount of acid produced in the stomach and protects the stomach lining from the effects of acid.

  20. Xanax (Alprazolam) is used to treat anxiety disorders and panic attacks. Alprazolam is in a class of

    medications called benzodiazepines. It works by decreasing abnormal excitement in the brain. Unlike

    other benzodiazepines which must be taken several times a day, Xanax is a once-daily formula, helping

    you all day long.
