"Infotainment? What the hell are you talking about?"

Autumn at the Louvre

The leaves are falling from the trees, hiding the dog shit underneath them, making every trip through the streets of Paris a real adventure. Who would suspect even more brown under those brown things?
It*s getting colder, but that doesn*t keep the tourists away, flocking into the city on this holiday week.

Tuesdays the Louvre is closed Nothing but blue skies on a cold day
Workers on the roof at the Cour Carrée
The Pavillon de l*Horloge

The Louvremobile! Louvreman must be around...
The emergency exit lukes of the museum were open today
And the pyramid is getting a cleaning session.
The only way to clean those glass tiles
Pétanque players at the Tuileries
endless rue de Rivoli
A far away Grand Palais
The children are having fun with their boats

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
