Lost and found

Whose glove is this? I'll never know... And I did not even bother bring it to the Lost and Found office of Paris, which is located in the 15th arrondissement (at rue des Morillons, an address that all Parisians have heard of!). In fact that's where all objects (apparently there are 600 to 700 lost objects every day in Paris!) end up eventually, but there is always a transit period where you should first inquire; it all depends on the place where you lost it: public transport, public places, taxis... The Préfecture de Paris has a whole page about it, but stupidly only in French. Being away in a country where I don't understand a word, I now realize how tourists who don't speak French must feel hopeless in France...


  1. Quite a place for a glove to be misplaced.

    I know of an artist who took lost gloves and made them into an exhibit.

  2. LOL Jeff. His prison certainly has the loveliest door.
    Does that artist have all the lost socks, too? : )
    Now that would be a mega-sculpture.

  3. Interesting! I wonder if my city has a lost and found office. I don't think so.

  4. I hope 2014 proves to be a good year for you and yours!

  5. That's intriguing! Reminds me of a scene that could be in a suspenseful movie or novel.
