A little touch of Paris / Un petit air de Paris


Another contribution from the same friend who brought you this hilarious website before :

click here to see Paris' roof tops


(A word of warning, though. Turn your volume down before clicking, as this site will launch a very loud sound file!)

Encore une contribution du meme copain qui nous avait donné cette page hilarante il y a quelques mois:

cliquer ici pour voir les toits de Paris


(Attention, quand on clique la-dessus, ça déclenche du son!)

D'accord avec toi, un peu snif. Pendant les premieres années de mon séjour aux US, a chaque fois qu'on me demandait "qu'est-ce que tu veux qu'on te rapporte de France" je demandais toujours des photos de Paris (Bien sur, c'était bien avant Internet). Et puis un beau jour, j'ai plus eu envie ou besoin de voir ces images. J'ai du passer un espece de point de non-retour. C'est dommage car pendant ce temps là, Paris s'etait mis à construire dans tous les sens et il y a maintenant plein d'endroits que j'ai jamais visités ou meme jamais entendu parler. Cependant, un petit morceau de Tour Eiffel quand on s'y attend pas (meme si je m'en foutais completement quand j'habitais à Paris), faut dire que ça pince toujours un peu.

You're right, it can make you homesick, too. During the first few years I came to the States, I kept asking people to bring me pictures of Paris at each visit (of course, it was a long time ago, way before the Internet). And then, one day, I stopped asking. Maybe I reached a point where there was no going back, anymore, I don't know. I guess I didn't need or want to see it anymore. Too bad, because Paris kept on building and expanding, and there are many areas and buildings that I have never seen or even heard of in Paris. Still, once in a while, I'll see a piece of the Eiffel Tower out of the blue on someone's computer or something like that, and you know, it still smarts a little.

It's kinda like I get when you post those great pics of San Francisco scenes...I remember getting a deli sandwich from the Marina Safeway and going over to Ft. Mason to sit in the sun and watch the Bay...I like New York but I love SF.

doctor denton: more to come in the near future, but first this cast has to come off. Going up and down the hills and public transportation with this thing is no picnic. Come to think of it, driving with a cast isn't great either.

I love Manhattan very much, but I'm sure it gets to you after a while if you can't get away at all.

I get away to Brazil twice a year and am getting ready to take a trip to Sicily to stay with friends the first week in March...the City, like SF, has its advantages and drawbacks.

I'm taking a group of students to Paris in April. I'll want them to see this, too.

Thanks for sharing!

My advice - to see the best rooftops view of Paris in the top of the Beaubourg Center (you have to pay a little now) or... The top of l'institut du monde Arabe (I don't remember whether it's free or not.
