Not much wonder then that the French are taking to the streets in protest. FB actually encountered a real live demonstration.
|What do we want?|
It was clear from the chant of the crowd how frustrated they were - loosely translated it ran
What do we want?
When do we want it?
Apparently there is a French batter called Sarkozy (whose stats do not feature in Cric Info) - the crowd evidently think he is scoring too slowly and want him dismissed - out, out, out in fact.
No visit to Paris would be complete without a climb up the Eiffel Tower, or a boat trip down the Siene and these were provided for in FB's programme. The Eiffel Tower is known for being tall - in fact it is the tallest Eiffel Tower in the world. There was also a visit to the Stade De France. Apparently this was built in under 3 years for a cost of 360 million Euros. No one associated with the Edinburgh Tram project was involved in that project - more's the pity.
FB was also humbled in the relatively new museum to the Shoah and took a tour of that over the top building that is the Opera House. Otherwise he just walked about taking things in.
|Where to start?|
Finally - at last you think - walking around the fashion district and just across the road from the main Chanel store, FB found a very special shop. Although it was closed at the time, so FB could not establish what manner of treasures it sells, its historic and cultural importance must be clear to all FB's readers.
|Is it a fantasy?|
So there is a part of Paris that is forever Fantasy Bob's.
